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: Exercising Your Plan

October's program topic will be about exercising your business continuity/emergency management/disaster recovery program.

We have spent the past year discussing how to build an in-house program and now it is time to run a training exercise to see how your staff will respond to the elements of your BCP management system in the face of a simulated disaster.  In our meeting, we will talk about how to construct your simulation exercise and then see some specific samples that reflect different types of emergency scenarios.
