Upcoming Webinars

2021 Legislative Session Recap

Tuesday, May 11, 10:00 a.m. Eastern
Free for Aim Members / $55 Non-Member

When the Legislative Session ends, most Aim members already have a good idea of what happened regarding the larger, more publicized bills impacting municipal government. However, there are always a plethora of bills that don’t make headlines during the session. This free webinar will help members better understand what is slated to become law in the weeks and months ahead and how it impacts cities and towns of all sizes.

Presented by Matt Greller, Chief Executive Officer, Aim; Jenna Knepper, Government Affairs Manager, Aim; Lindsey Moss, Chief Government Affairs Officer & Legislative Counsel, Aim; and Campbell Ricci, Policy Director, Aim

Unbe-lease-able! Owning Equipment While Spreading Costs Over Time

Join Aim partner the Indiana Bond Bank for an interactive and timely webinar as they share the secrets of equipment lease-purchase financing.

Topics will include an introduction to state partner Indiana Bond Bank; unlocking the benefits of paying for equipment over time; the difference between capital leasing and operating leasing; bidding requirements; and the built-in legal advantages of Indiana Bond Bank equipment financing tool. Join this webinar to hear from the Indiana Bond Bank and two special sharing insight into capital leasing and a recent capital leasing experience.

What We Learned from the Water Loss Audits

Tuesday, June 22, 10:00 a.m. Eastern
$25 Member / $55 Non-Member

The 2019 Indiana General Assembly enacted Senate Enrolled Act 4 (SEA 4), requiring all community water systems to perform an annual Water Loss Audit and have it validated by an Indiana Certified Water loss Audit Validator, that is third party to completion of the audit, every even-numbered year. The first Water Loss Audits and Validations were due in 2020. This webinar will give an overview of the Water Loss Audits conducted in 2020 from the perspective of a Town Operator, an engineering firm conducting the audits, and the Indiana Finance Authority. We will discuss the process, what we learned, and what we can expect in the future.

Presented by Donny Aleo, Superintendent of Streets and Utilities, Town of Arcadia; Sarah Hudson, Director of the Water Resources and Infrastructure Planning Program, Indiana Finance Authority; and Sarah Wittig, P.E, Commonwealth Engineers
