Chapter Meeting

June 2, 2022

Virtual Networking - 8:30-9am

Business Meeting and Presentation -


Speaker - Cheyenne Marling, BC Management

Topic - BCM Competencies in Demand to Ensure Career Resiliency

Years of expertise, degrees and certifications, although beneficial and marketable, will not necessarily predict your professional trajectory.  Data shows that if you want to get hired, stay hired, and grow your career you need to develop highly requested soft skills, build a powerful personal brand, and be adaptable to change. Becoming a top talent requires more than using your expertise to meet the needs of your organization. It necessitates using your talents, creativity, and expertise to think outside of the box and advance the success of your team, program, and company.

Organizations are being forced to adapt to the complexity of the current risk landscape at a rapid pace. While you’re focused on preparing for and managing one crisis, another is almost always lurking in the shadows. Over the last few years, we’ve learned that critical events can impact multiple departments within an organization, yet managing these risks is still being done in silos. A single threat can impact cyber and physical security, compliance and even human resources departments. Organizations need to reorganize their processes, workflow and structure to achieve organizational resilience. This is shift is expanding the traditional role of the business continuity leader and giving way to the introduction of the Chief Resilience Officer.

Join Matt Bradley, VP of Global Security Solutions at OnSolve as he reviews the impact of dynamic risk on organizations and exactly how the roles of the business continuity professional and chief resilience officer are evolving and developing.

Business Continuity Fundamentals: BC Bootcamp in One Hour



 May 24-26, 2022

The AZ Department of Economic Security's Emergency Planning and Preparedness Administration (EPPA) team, is organizing the first-ever Arizona State Emergency Repatriation Plan (AZ SERP) full scale exercise (FSE). The FSE will be conducted May 24-26, with the full day of "play" happening on May 25 from approximately 7:00a.m through 5:00 p.m.. I wanted to reach out to see if any of your members might be interested in participating as Actors on the 25th. As "Repatriates", the exercise will start at Phoenix Sky Harbor with simulated arrival at the International Terminal. Repatriates requiring assistance will be transported to the Emergency Repatriation Center where DES and our SERP Partners will provide several services such as Cash Advance, Crisis Counseling, Onward Travel, etc.. Repatriates will be returned to Sky Harbor at the end of the exercise. 

We are working with a contractor to recruit approximately 250 Actors. ACP members would bring a great deal of experience as Actors, Evaluators or Controllers! 

Lunch will be provided!

Let me know if you are interested in participating. We will connect you with the right folks to get the ball rolling.
