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’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.
