Session 1:

Title:  ADA Litigation - Self-Assessments, Websites, and More…


Speaker:  Barbara Thorpe, Disability Access Consultants (DAC)


Description:  Understanding the ADA trends will help to prepare for the inevitable. Current ADA data will be reviewed to help your agency understand and mitigate ADA exposures. Preparation and understanding the trends is key to survival to minimize claims and reduce lawsuits. This session will include hot topics such as sidewalks, bus stops, recreational sites, piers, amusement sites, restrooms, websites, service animals and other turbulent conditions. Having an ADA coordinator, ADA self-evaluation and transition plan decreases ADA risks that may be on the radar. You will learn to understand current and forecasted trends.



Session 2:

Title:  Where Should Risk Management Be in Your Agency?


Speakers:  Tony Giles, General Manager, CJPRMA

                   Scott Mann, Risk Manager, City of Sunnyvale

                   Steve Robles, Risk Manager, County of Los Angeles



Description:  Risk Management is assigned to different departments depending on the needs and organizational structure of each public agency. Risk can be found in the chief executive's office (City Manager, County Executive, School Superintendent, etc.), legal (City Attorney, County Counsel, General Counsel, etc.), the human resources department and the finance department. All of these functions have an important role to play in an agency's risk management efforts. The speakers will discuss the various organizational structures and their related pros and cons. Also, recognizing that risk managers do not usually get to choose where the risk function resides, the speakers will provide tips for running a successful risk management function in any of these structures.


The session will also address the issue that many employees assigned to risk management activities are often professionals from other disciplines (administration, legal, finance, human resources, etc.). The speakers will discuss how these employees can build on their personal expertise to become strong risk professionals and how their skills can enhance the risk management function. By the end of this session, participants will be able to: 1. Know the variety of departments in a public agency that the risk management function can be assigned. 2. Understand the pros & cons of assignment to specific departments. 3. How to be successful in any of the possible organizational structures.
