Workshop: Creating a Crisis Management Plan

As a nonprofit leader, you know that organizational success is a direct result of careful planning. Whether you are crafting plans for your organization as a whole, or specific plans for each area of operation, we understand the hard work that goes into securing your organization’s future. Imagine having the benefit of hands on, professional guidance as you create the most critical plans for your organization. Introducing, INIE Workshops – come with your questions, but leave with a plan.

 "A COOP Plan (COOP) is a document that describes the processes that an organization should use to respond to a critical situation or during a time of disruption that could adversely affect its profitability, reputation or ability to operate to ensure you can continue your daily operation."

 In this class, you will not only learn about the phases in emergency but also potential threats to your area, you will also work on template for building your plan with the assistant of our instructors, Marcia Warfel and Joe Myers.  In addition you will also learn tips, tools and know-how to prepare a plan for unforeseen circumstances.

 At the conclusion of the workshop, you will have a mini-plan to establish additional policies and procedures to ensure your organization's successful crisis response and help you reduce the impact of the unexpected and ensure less interruption to service delivery.
