Published 9:35 pm Monday, March 30, 2009

The City of Jemison has been notified it will receive a Gold Risk Management Award at the 2009 Convention of the Alabama League of Municipalities in Montgomery on May 5.

Approximately 760 public entities participate in on of both of the Alabama League of Municipalities (ALM) sponsored insurance programs which are the Alabama Municipal Workers Compensation Fund and the Alabama Municipal Insurance Corporation. The board of directors of both insurance programs approved the establishment of a Risk Management Award system in 2002. The award system recognizes those members who have instituted risk management and loss control activities not only benefit the member’s loss ratio but also the overall success of the league sponsored insurance. Through the efforts of the City of Jemison, employees and citizens are reaping the rewards of a safer workplace and community.

Recipients of the President’s Risk Management Award, which includes the top five percent of those members with minimal losses for a five year period, will receive a specially designed memento.

The Alabama League of Municipalities was organized in 1935 and has served since that time as the recognized voice of the cities and towns in Alabama.
