Portland Business Leaders Resilience Forum


Catastrophes strike anytime, anywhere and can disrupt every aspect of a business - from employee and workplace operations to I.T. and supply chains. Are you prepared for your business to be disrupted by a disaster? Do you have a plan for serving your customers, partners and employees when your building has been damaged, the power is out and phones aren't working?

On Monday, April 25, 2016, the American Red Cross Cascades Region in partnership with Ferguson Wellman, Cambia Health Solutions, Portland Business Alliance (PBA) and Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) will host a FREE Business Leader Resilience Forum to help businesses learn how to prepare for disasters- large and small.

This forum is open to businesses of all sizes and industries, and will cover local hazards and business resilience issues. Attendees will be provided tools and resources available to assess their disaster readiness, plan for disasters and engage employees.
