RIMS Webinar—Pandemic Plan of Action 9/2/2009

 

The Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS) will host a webinar entitled Pandemic Plan of Action, on September 10 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. EST to provide perspective on the risks posed by pandemic influenza activity.  In the wake of the hype and misinformation that continues to surround the H1N1 pandemic, this webinar, moderated by Bill Coffin, publisher and editorial director of Risk Management magazine, will address specific action items risk managers can implement to improve their organizations’ resilience and manage exposure to liability both pre- and post-pandemic activity.  Panelists include Michael Keating, director of business continuity management at Navigant Consulting; Michael Liebowitz, director of risk management and insurance at New York University; and Joseph McMenamin, partner at McGuire Woods LLP.  The event is being sponsored by the RIMS Nevada Chapter.   

The webinar is FREE for RIMS members. All others may participate for a fee of $30.  For more information, please visit www.RIMS.org/pandemicaction.
