NCACC Frank Bonner Scholarship

In June 2004, the NCACC Risk Management Pools Board of Trustees adopted a resolution honoring the life of Frank Bonner, a dedicated long-serving commissioner from Beaufort County who was instrumental in establishing the Pools and served as both Trustee and Chair of the Board of Trustees for many years. The intent of the scholarship is to further the risk management education of a member employee who has demonstrated great initiative and dedication to implementing risk management techniques in the workplace.

The 2020 award consists of full payment of registration and associated fees, hotel and all travel expenses to attend the 5-day PRIMA Institute, which takes place Monday, Oct. 26, through Friday, Oct. 30, in Washington, D.C.

PRIMA Institute is the premier educational program for both new risk managers and seasoned risk professionals who seek to learn more about emerging trends and best practices in risk management. An innovative educational symposium comprised of fundamental risk management curriculum and outstanding faculty, PRIMA Institute 2020 also offers an excellent networking opportunity for public entity risk managers.

The winner will also receive a framed award certificate, along with a check to cover their incidental expenses, which will be presented by a representative of the NCACC at a Board of Commissioners meeting or other county staff event of the member’s choosing.

In order to be eligible, applicants must:

• Be employed by a county that participates in the NCACC Liability & Property Pool or the Workers Compensation Pool, and

• Be primarily responsible for risk management and/or insurance administration for that county (or county entity).
