In an effort to support all levels of risk-sharing pool professionals, the California Association of Joint Powers Authorities (CAJPA) will provide the Current CEO Program to chief executive officers (CEOs) and general managers who are the leaders and change makers of risk-sharing pools.

This CAJPA Summit Series program will include a high-profile keynote speaker and a facilitated round-table discussion on common challenges faced by individuals in a leadership role in addition to emerging trends in the risk-sharing community.

During these intensive discussions, strategies and techniques for developing teams, improving communication with others, coaching staff, moving through change and leading effectively may be addressed. By design, the facilitated discussion will be dynamic and organic allowing for the best and the brightest in the industry to engage with one another and exchange experiences and lessons learned.
