The world has become a more unpredictable place, and organizations that hold meetings need to be prepared to respond if an emergency arises. Reducing panic, ensuring safety, and containing liability are crucial goals of a strong crisis management plan.


Crisis management plans are not one-size-fits-all. They need to be reviewed and revised regularly to incorporate external factors, such as location and current events, that may not have been present when your plan was first created.


In this program, one of six courses in the Business of Meetings Certificate Program , participate with industry peers to:

  • Identify necessary and important components to include in your crisis management plan.
  • Develop your communications strategy to respond immediately and appropriately.
  • Develop multiple response modules that apply to different scenarios.

Registration for this online session will close Tuesday, November 30, at 2:00 p.m. ET.
