2018 Programs

The theme for 2018 will be best practices for building or refreshing a business continuity plan.    We’ll begin the year by focusing on the steps required to start a business continuity program.  Each subsequent month, we’ll build on what we’ve learned and take the next logical step in moving the plan to implementation.  To reinforce our learning, we will build a BC plan for a fictitious company.  Each month, all meeting materials and the updates to the fictitious company BC plan will be uploaded to the GTBACP website so those who could not attend will be able to stay current on our progress. 
Whether you’re just starting to build your plan or looking to learn best practices, there will be opportunities for everyone as we move through the various phases to build our knowledge base through collaboration and education.
Be sure to visit the Events page for an overview of all 2018 monthly meetings.

Topic: Crisis Management Tools

July's program is a continuation of our crisis management theme.  In June, we learned how the City of Tampa manages crises and how they are in the process of forming a business EOC, in collaboration with ACP, for the Tampa area businesses.  This month, we'll focus on crisis communication within our organizations.

For the past 9 years, Ms. Williams has been helping companies streamline and improve their business continuity and communication processes across the enterprise.
