The Public Risk Management Association (PRIMA) is a non-profit education and training organization for public sector risk management practitioners on state and local levels. Through its resources and educational programs, PRIMA helps its public entity members develop effective risk management programs, is dedicated to increasing risk management professionalism in the public sector and helps their members develop cost-effective techniques for handling the unique problems risk managers face.

PRIMA is the largest risk management association dedicated solely to the practice of risk management in the public sector. PRIMA’s membership is made up of more than 2,000 entities in over 1,800 jurisdictions. PRIMA’s members coordinate risk management, purchase insurance, manage human resources, administrate safety and environmental programs, manage labor issues, handle parks and recreation programs and much more. They adhere to a strict code of ethics, a standard of professional conduct as it applies to member work-related activities.

Mission: To advance the knowledge and practice of public risk management.
