What is the ICMC
The International Crisis Management Conference (ICMC) was created to help support the demand for regionalized education and training for preparedness professionals. The demand for a variety of preparedness skills and a thirst for knowledge with respect to scenario-based training and exercises is at an all-time high. ICMC provides a range of professional speakers that deliver current and interesting topics that are often themed (scenario) based. ICMC welcomes you to its growing family of preparedness professionals and hopes that you will join us for one of our conferences soon.
Who Should Attend?
During an emergency, large or small, your organization and those internal partners as well as external stakeholders from the surrounding community will have to work together in order to respond to a crisis. If your organization and its partners are prepared, the damage to the operation of the business should be minimal, the impact to the reputation of the brand reduced, and less chaos to the surrounding community and its residents. ICMC brings together a good mix of crisis, emergency, business continuity and security professionals from both the private and public sectors. Our attendees learn from each other and share their own experience which ultimately creates stronger relationships within the wider preparedness community. At an ICMC conference you’ll get the opportunity to meet and form relationships with:
- Crisis and Incident Management Professionals
- Business Continuity Management Professionals
- Crisis Communications and Public Relations Professionals
- Cyber-Security Professionals
- IT Disaster Recovery Professionals
- Emergency Management Professionals
- First Responders – Fire, Police and Emergency Medical Services
- Security Management Professionals
- Risk Management Professionals
- As well as many more industry experts
