An attendee health emergency … an act of violence … a catastrophic weather event… You can’t predict what kind of misfortune will affect your meeting, so you’ve got to be ready for anything. Later this month, the Association of Destination Management Executives International is rolling out a new emergency preparedness and risk management certificate program aimed at doing just that.
The 10-hour course, which runs over two days, is focused on the issues facing meeting, event, and destination management professionals, including risk assessment and a team-based approach to building an emergency operations plan.
The association has scheduled two dates for the certificate program in 2017: March 28–29 in Dallas and July 18–19 in Washington, D.C. The cost is $585 for staff of ADMEI member companies and $650 for all other meeting professionals, with group discounts available. Visit ADMEI for more information.
