***If you are a new member or are considering membership, please meet our Membership Co-Chairs, Rhonda Chesney and Lester Cornelius, in the hotel bar from 4:15-4:45pm to get acquainted with us and learn a bit more about Heartland Chapter over a beverage.

PCMA Best in Class Speaker, Bob Mellinger, Founder and CEO of Attanium, leads our program on Business Continuity Planning, which has never been more critical to the long-term success and survivability of organizations than today. Billions of dollars in productivity, revenue, and ill will between customers and organizations are lost every year as a result of disasters and companies’ inability to respond to them appropriately. You will participate in table-top exercises designed to put you in the throes of a real-life disaster situation, as it unfolds. You will make the critical decisions any organization will have to make – and deal with the consequences of those decisions! After you’ve finished, you’ll understand the importance of planning in advance for a disaster or other business disruption.
