California JPIA Renews Partnership with California City Management Foundation

The California Joint Powers Insurance Authority (California JPIA) has renewed its partnership with the California City Management Foundation (CCMF), a premier advocacy organization that promotes and encourages excellence in the city management profession.

“Thank you to the California JPIA for supporting local agencies and the city managers who lead them,” said CCMF President Ken Striplin. “The California JPIA is an integral partner for many of our members. We’re grateful for your steady support, backed by a full understanding of the challenges city managers face.”

CCMF and the California JPIA recognize the city management profession as a challenging mix of fiscal management, politics, legal issues, and public relations. Both organizations are dedicated to supporting the next generation of city managers in navigating these challenges, and advocate for healthy council-manager relations and the well-being of city managers to ensure stable and successful communities.

These common objectives have reinforced the Authority’s partnership with CCMF as a Foundation Circle Sponsor since 2015.

“The connections developed through CCMF are vital, particularly during the current tumultuous times,” said California JPIA Chief Executive Officer Jon Shull. “We are proud to continue our support of a valuable organization that encourages California’s city managers and inspires forward-looking dialogue in the city management community.”
