“The new conference will be relevant to both business continuity professionals and a wider audience of those working in public safety,” said Brock Holowachuk, DRI Canada President, “I’m confident that the partners DCC has engaged will allow us to meet the changing needs of the continuity management community, and exceed the expectations of delegates.”
Peter Power FBCI, Chair of WCDM, said, “this will be a much needed highly focused event, linked to WCDM, and specifically aimed at delivering leading edge and cost effective ideas on such a vital topic”.
“Having all three BC associations in Canada collaborate towards the same goal of meeting the primary educational needs of the continuity management professional is a first in Canada”, said Dan Joyce, VP Business Development, DCC, “the new conference will also include webinars, workshops, and online training.”
Details on the Continuity Management Symposium, as well as dates and location for the 2018 conference, will be announced by DCC in the very near future.
