As the coronavirus continues to evolve throughout our communities, PERMA has evaluated our daily business operations and effective Friday, March 20th all PERMA operations will be conducted remotely. These necessary steps are to ensure the health and safety of all our employees and based on the guidance from state/federal governments.

While this remains a challenging time for us all, the changes to our operations will not affect our commitment to daily functions in serving each of our Members. We are still available online and by phone and will maintain our high level of responsiveness to you.


Below are some additional reminders and PERMA services that are available online.

Member Reminders:

  • As your Municipal operations change too, we ask that you please provide an updated point of contact for PERMA to reach out to during that time. To provide this information please complete this short survey.
  • We ask our Members to avoid sending paper documents to our office – please refer to the department email addresses below as this will allow us to continue to provide uninterrupted services to our Members.

Online Resources: The following can be found on our website; however, they require a Member login to access.

PERMA Contacts: At this time we encourage you to communicate with us via email. A full list of our staff directory is available here.
