This week, several members of the BOLDplanning team are working close to home, and talking about something that’s near and dear to their hearts—campus safety. They are on the main campus of Tennessee State University, Nashville, TN, for the 2018 Best Practices in Higher Education Emergency Management Conference.

The conference, now in its sixth year, highlights the resiliency of higher education emergency management practitioners when faced with natural and human-caused incidents affecting their campuses. Given recent events and increasing campus safety concerns, the event is appropriately themed “Preparing the Educators of Today for the Hazards of Tomorrow.”

The 2018 conference schedule includes keynote addresses, technical presentations, expert panels, luncheons, networking opportunities and a banquet. Participants have the opportunity to learn and grow by sharing in the many experiences and best practices of colleagues, plus see the industry-leading products and services of conference exhibitors like BOLDplanning.

BOLDplanning is providing hands-on demonstrations of its online platform for emergency, continuity and mitigation planning.

Pictured here is BOLDplanning Operations Manager, Will Minkoff, as he explains the critical role that planning (and ultimately, BOLDplanning) plays in all four phases of emergency management—preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation. It’s a topic that Will and the rest of the BOLDplanning team are very enthusiastic about!

“It is great to welcome conference attendees to Nashville. We always enjoy this event, and the chance to discuss today’s hot topics with higher education emergency managers from across the country,” says Minkoff.

If you’re attending the 2018 Best Practices in Higher Education Emergency Management Conference, we invite you to stop by our booth to meet Will and others from the BOLDplanning team.
