9:15 AM - 9:45 AM ROUNDTABLES
This session is designed around peer learning, personal interaction, collaboration and attendee-generated ideas.


9:45 AM - 11:00 AM ERGONOMICS & MILLENNIALS: THE IMPACT ON WORKERS’ COMP
Presented by Kathy Espinoza, AVP, Ergonomics and Safety, Keenan & Associates

Risk managers have focused much of their attention on the needs of aging employees, while overlooking a potentially more challenging ergonomic conundrum — ergonomics for Millennials. In just a few years, Millennials will make up 75% of the global workforce, and they will enter the workforce having used technology all of their lives with developed patterns and habits around that use of technology. Discover practical ways to manage young workers’ comfort and deal with their potentially pre-existing injuries.

Session takeaways:
• Identify the ergonomic issues that Millennials bring to the workplace
• Recognize the habits from life-long technology use that will affect ergonomic evaluations
• How to persuade Millennials to ergonomically conform to a more structured workplace


11:00 AM - 11:45 AM ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, IT DOESN’T HAPPEN ON ITS OWN
Presented by Darrell Talbert, City Manager, City of Corona

From business retention to expansion, job creation to local infrastructure improvements, economic development plays an important role in local government. This session will provide an overview of local government economic development in California, discuss best practices and highlight today’s trends. This session will include Q & A to engage participants.


11:45 AM - 12:15 PM LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

Stay-up-to-date on local and state policies that affect your organization.


12:15 PM - 1:00 PM LUNCH & NETWORKING


1:00 PM - 4:00 PM PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT: THE VITAL LEADERSHIP SKILL IN DIFFICULT TIMES
ICMA University Workshop
(CGL Certified - Civic Engagement)
Presented by Pete Peterson, Dean and Senior Fellow, Pepperdine University’s School of Public Policy and Davenport Institute


As cities, regions, and school districts face unprecedented decisions on issues ranging from budgets to land use, a growing number of public leaders are finding new ways at arriving at policy solutions—more participatory and transparent. Previously, these conclusions were reached through bargaining at the “stakeholder” level, but the size and scope of today’s budget deficits and longstanding planning battles are pushing some leaders to “look out” to their residents rather than “look in” to their own capabilities. This can be a nervous undertaking, but managed effectively, public involvement on important decisions can lead to more creative, acceptable solutions. In this practical and participatory seminar, you will learn:
• The “Civic Engagement Spectrum”: From “informing” to “involving” your residents
• When your city, region, or school district is ready to engage the public
• The five main criteria for judging an effective civic engagement process
