Issue 104 - October 2020
Resilient Together, our digital Risk Management Educational Forum, has concluded. Thank you to all our members, business partners, speakers, and content producers for an amazing event!
Our entire program was packed with can’t-miss content, but we especially want to thank our Master of Ceremonies and Emmy Award-winning TV personality, Katie Linendoll. Also, our two keynote speakers, Robert O’Neill and Dr. Susan Biali Hass, brought timely presentations on leading in crisis and resilience.
When we began this year, we all expected to be meeting in Santa Barbara. Yet, 2020 brought us other plans. This year’s virtual event, Resilient Together, broke many records, with over 500 attendees up and down the state. Bringing our annual Risk Management Educational Forum to a virtual format was a significant undertaking, and we could not have been successful without your support.
That success can be measured in many ways, including seeing a 28% increase in total attendance, a 25% increase in participation by supervisors and line staff, and a 19% increase in first-time registrants. None of this would have been possible without our 35 sponsors that underwrote roughly 45% of the total cost.
We hope that Resilient Together provided you with ample opportunities to learn from knowledgeable experts about some of the top risk management and contemporary issues facing local government. We also hope that you were able to network with other attendees and inspired to be Resilient Together.
Many have asked how they can view the live and pre-recorded content. We are making it available to you through our Resilient Together EHub. If you attended the event, you may be asked to provide your registration email to access the content. If you did not register for the event, enter your name, organization, title, and email, and then click on submit/enter.
Some live recorded sessions will only be available for 60 days or less, whereas the remaining content will remain viewable over the next few months before we transition it into other formats.
We look forward to the day when we can see each other again in person. Hopes are that this will be possible by next fall when we meet at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, California on September 15 thru 17. Until then, may we continue to be Resilient Together.< Back to Full Issue Print Article
