In response to questions raised by members regarding dates and deadlines of upcoming seminars and programs, we have prepared the following page with training and reimbursement deadlines.  While the JIF cannot require attendance at these sessions or participation in these programs, they are designed to help you comply with statutes and court decisions that place obligations on municipal officials and employees.

As an added enticement to participate, the JIF has built in incentives to encourage participation.  For example, attendance in the Managerial & Supervisory and the Police Command Staff training is an essential element to qualify for lower deductibles and co-pays under the Employment Practices Liability policy.  Completion of the Elected Officials program will entitle your municipality to a premium discount.  Below are the current offerings.
