June 11, 2007, ALEXANDRIA, VA—The Public Risk Management Association (PRIMA) debuted its newly redesigned Web site at the opening of its 28th Annual Conference in Boston today.
The site boasts an easier-to-navigate layout and crisper, cleaner content. The site will serve as the gateway to a wealth of public sector risk management resources, including PRIMA’s popular PRIMAtalk listserv and its online university.
“The launch of the new Web site is just one of the ways PRIMA is working to keep up with the changing face of risk management,” said Lisa Lopinsky, CAE, PRIMA executive director. “While PRIMA’s Web site has always provided risk managers with basic information and educational tools, the new site goes one step further by offering in-depth information on the profession and online resources to help risk professionals address the daily challenges of their jobs.”
The Web site redesign coincides with the launch of PRIMA’s online university, which offers more than 200 courses ranging from OSHA compliance and job safety to leadership, sexual harassment issues, emergency disaster planning and workplace safety. The online university joins PRIMA’s online Risk Management for Public Entities (RMPE) certification course, launched late last year.
“By adding the online university to PRIMA’s catalog of educational courses, PRIMA is upping the ante for risk management education and training,” said Lopinsky. “Our goal is to be the go-to learning resource for risk managers in the public sector.”
PRIMA’s new Web site also has a powerful search feature, which allows visitors to look for their favorite risk resources.
The Association’s mission is to promote effective risk management in the public interest as an essential component of public administration. Headquartered in Alexandria, VA, PRIMA is the largest risk management association dedicated solely to the practice of risk management in the public sector. PRIMA’s membership is made up of more than 2,000 entities in over 1,800 jurisdictions.
