PARMA’s 2016 Conference Date & Location Change

The PARMA Board of Directors was recently informed by the Monterey Conference Center that the facility will be under-construction during the dates of the 2016 conference and unavailable for use.  Although both parties worked diligently to evaluate various alternatives and accommodations, it was determined that the center would not be able to host a conference of our size.  Therefore, the Board has decided to move the conference to the Renaissance Indian Wells Resort & Spa on February 23-26, 2016.  We believe you will find this to be an excellent alternative.  Additionally, the Board would like to thank the Monterey Convention Center, the Portola and the Marriott for working hard to try and accommodate us while the renovations are being completed and we would also like to thank the Renaissance for stepping up to host the Conference on such short notice.

Continuing Education 

PARMA offers continuing education at their annual conference and encourages presenters to submit sessions that will qualify for these continuing education classes. If you are a presenter and already have approved content be sure to indicate that when you will out a Call for Session form. We look for continuing education sessions that fall under the categories of Liability, Safety, Workers’ Compensation, Risk Management and Leadership. We also have a “General” category.

PARMA sessions at the annual conference are approved through the HR Certification Institute.


PARMA Scholarships 

PARMA’s vision is to assist Public Entity Risk Managers in achieving success in their careers and to provide Public Entities with the support they need to make their Risk Managers successful. With this in mind we design a conference to provide quality education and training in all the aspects of risk management. To help assist in funding, PARMA offers scholarships for the conference from both PARMA as an association and also through its chapters.
