The Disaster Experience Quick-Fire for Continuity Professionals

Presenters: Bob Mellinger – President - Attainium Corp

Chances are that while you read this, an unexpected disaster is causing an organization stress and confusion and is affecting its ability to provide products and services to its customers. Are the organization’s leaders prepared to handle it? Will they be able to recover? Disasters of every shape, size, look and feel happen all the time, affecting businesses, people's jobs, lives and families.

You will participate in a small group, and work through an actual disaster scenario. The story unfolds with the delivery of multiple incidents in rapid succession. Your group prepares its responses to the questions provided. Groups are then selected to present their results and insight. The scenario then continues where it left off and the process is repeated. This session is highly interactive and very fast-paced.

Collaborate, Innovate and Transform

Chapter News 

From the ACP-OC eNews Director:

As you know, designing the Chapter eNews  is not celebrated work, and it suffers a poor reputation for a multitude of reasons. Most notably,  delayed or outdated information due to blocked emails, emails that go into the 'parking lot sink hole', or out of date member information that places the member in the rejected email report.
In 2018 we implemented MailChimp to streamline the process of creating, maintaining and distributing the Chapter eNew with the objective to move our Chapter into the 21st Century. We have been successful in stepping up templates, creating dashboards and reports that provide critical information on the success of delivery, how many emails opened, etc. 
We have been unsuccessful in getting the Chapter eNews to all members and need your support in addressing this issue by providing the following information:
1.  Your work email
2.  Ask your Information Technology to put the ACP-OC eNews as a 'trusted site'
3.  If possible provide an alternate email 
4.  Forward all updates to:This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
As December fast approaches and we look at potential new Board Members the eNews Director would like to resolve all the issues with the eNews and establish a process that is streamlined, easy and fun to use.
Thank you for your continued support!
