On October 31, Kent County received the Local Government Insurance Trust’s (LGIT) Training Award at LGIT’s 26th Annual Meeting in Annapolis, Maryland.
This is an annual award which the Trust, a MACo Gold Corporate Partner, gives to a member that has been exemplary in their Training efforts and meets the criteria which LGIT has developed to gauge their activities.
Here is the report for the award that Stewart Cumbo, Chairman of the Risk Management Committee gave at the meeting:
The LGIT Training Award is presented to a member that recognizes the value of and strives to participate in LGIT seminars and trainings.
Kent County consistently takes advantage of LGIT-sponsored training classes and seminars. The County’s frequent participation in workshops, seminars, on-line training and hosting LGIT-sponsored training classes demonstrates its commitment to loss prevention and loss reduction through education.
Special recognition must be made for the outstanding effort made by the County’s Risk Manager and other County Departments to training County personnel. Kent County hosted several important classes during fiscal year 2013 including: Harassment in the Workplace , Reasonable Suspicion and Defensive Driving training.
With this outstanding effort, it is obvious that Kent County understands the benefits and positive impact loss control and risk management training can provide. County attendance at training continues to benefit not only County staff and personnel, but the citizens of Kent County and the community as a whole.
The Local Government Insurance Trust appreciates the strong partnership it has with Kent County in risk management training participation.
