PERI awards scholarships for annual conference
The Fairfax, Va.-based Public Entity Risk Institute (PERI) has awarded $1,000 scholarships to 29 recipients — including cities, counties, school districts and a non-profit agency — to send representatives to the 2008 Public Risk Management Association (PRIMA) Conference, scheduled for June 1-4 in Anaheim, Calif. It is the 11th year for PERI’s Small Entity Scholarship Award.
The PRIMA conference will offer workshop sessions and presentations by risk management experts. “The opportunities afforded during PRIMA to learn about new risk management practices and to meet colleagues from across the nation are invaluable,” PERI Executive Director Gerard Hoetmer said in a statement.
Eligibility for the scholarships is based on the applicants’ size or operating budget and the scope of their risk management responsibilities.
