Aim Medical Trust: The Responsible and Easy Approach to Municipal Health (Free for Members)

Tuesday, August 18, 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. Eastern
Free for Members / $55 Non-Member

Municipalities face stagnant revenues, increasing healthcare costs, and an uncertain future. Cities and towns of all sizes need a partner focused on their best interest. The Aim Medical Trust provides cities and towns across Indiana with a fiscally responsible approach to healthcare. Whether your city or town is self-funded or fully insured, the Trust can improve the health of your municipality in more ways than one. The Trust is growing because it is not a fly-by-night program. This self-funded program is owned by the participating members, managed by Aim, governed by a Board of Trustees and regulated by the Indiana Department of Insurance. Forty seven municipalities and over forty two hundred participant employees committed to the Aim Medical Trust because they needed long-term stability in premium costs, dependable health insurance coverage and comprehensive customer support services, including ACA reporting and compliance. The participant employees have access to high quality health plan designs, disease management programs, care coordination, wellness programs and United Healthcare’s nationwide network of providers and medical facilities.

This free webinar will provide an in-depth overview of the Aim Medical Trust’s structure and services and how your municipality can obtain a proposal today!

Public Bidding

Tuesday, August 25, 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. Eastern
$25 Members / $55 Non-Member

Public bidding laws go much further than how to solicit interest and pricing for municipal projects. In fact, failing to follow the rules can result in serious consequences for your projects, costing you time, money, and more. Learn skills such as how to solicit and open bids, and award contracts based upon your bids.

Connecting on Social Media

Thursday, September 17, 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. Eastern 
$25 Members / $55 Non-Member

Connecting no longer requires a two-hour meeting or a meet up at a coffee shop. Effective communication efforts can be utilized in just a few hundred characters. Social media has become a vital tool for municipalities to reach out and engage citizens and legislators. Attend this webinar to learn the strategy behind virtual connections with your followers.

What’s Your Score? The Hoosier Resilience Index

Thursday, October 15, 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. Eastern 
$25 Members / $55 Non-Member

Climate change will not impact every city and town the same way, nor to the same extent.

Join this webinar to learn more about the Hoosier Resilience Index.

Emergency Management and After-action Assessments

Thursday, November 5, 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. Eastern

Emergencies begin and end locally. This webinar will cover the steps your community can take to reduce vulnerability, cope with disasters, and work with the county and state.

Code Enforcement 101

Thursday, November 19, 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. Eastern 
$25 Members / $55 Non-Member

Code Enforcement is a difficult and time consuming task for most municipalities. This webinar will provide insight on tried and true methods for addressing issues within your community. Are warrants necessary to perform code enforcement inspections? Have there been changes to the statute that affect how you should address weed and rank vegetation abatement? These and many other questions will be addressed. Learn how partnering with your local health department can benefit your efforts, how to make sure that your ordinances are kept up-to-date, and how to decide whether enforcement is warranted in difficult situations.
