Hundreds of emergency management professionals are in Hot Springs, Arkansas, this week for training (August 26 and 27, 2019) and the Annual Emergency Management Conference (August 28 through 30). So is BOLDplanning, the preeminent developer of online solutions for emergency Operations Planning (EOP), Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP), Business Continuity Planning (BCP), and Hazard Mitigation. The company is a Silver Sponsor of the popular event, which is put on by the Arkansas Emergency Management Association (AEMA) and the Arkansas Division of Emergency Management (ADEM).

This year’s conference is being held at the Hot Springs Convention Center. Among the many speakers on the agenda are: Arkansas Governor, the Honorable Asa Hutchinson; Wal-Mart® Emergency Management Director, Jason Jackson; Arkansas Air National Guard, Colonel Damon Cluck; various individuals from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (Region 6); and others from several high-profile organizations.   

Conference registration and exhibits open at 10:00 AM CDT on Wednesday, August 28, 2019. BOLDplanning representative (and Arkansas native), Brittney Whatley, CBCP, will be on hand, as will Director of Business Development, John Taylor, CBCP. The two will provide demonstrations of the BOLDplanning platform, which is the solution of choice for more than 10,000 organizational plans nationwide. The company will also hold a drawing for a DJI® Spark Mini-Drone and a flatscreen TV.
