From fires and natural disasters, to workplace violence or the unexpected death of a key staffer, crises can strike businesses at any time. A disruption in services, communications and workflow can have an immediate impact on costs and operations and a lasting impact on the ability to retain members, sponsors and other key partners.

That’s why having a strong business continuity plan is critical. Nonprofit finance professionals play a key role in building that plan and making sure it’s ready to “go live” at the very first sign of trouble.

The newest workshop in TRENDS’ Nonprofit Finance Series shows you how.

In this half-day training, you’ll learn how to build a strong business continuity plan and put it into action. Your guide is Bob Mellinger, an expert on business continuity, emergency preparedness and crisis management. During this highly interactive workshop, he helps you master every facet of your role, from recognizing potential threats, to developing your plan and using it to help your organization recover quickly from anything from power outages, fire, storms and floods, to crises that threaten the safety of your people, property and information.

A mock-disaster exercise lets you test what you’ve learned. You’ll participate in a tabletop training exercise that simulates the challenges your organization could face when trouble strikes. This is your chance to apply your new business continuity planning expertise—and hone your communications and decision-making skills—before you face a real-life crisis.

This TRENDS Finance training event also includes breakfast and networking time with other nonprofit finance professionals.
