On November 11, or the Monday after if it falls on a weekend, we celebrate Veterans' Day. In Europe, this is still remembered as Armistice Day, which remembers the end of "The Great War for Civilization"--We call it World War I.
Remember why we have a day off--and it's not to start the Christmas shopping!
This article appeared in the summer issue of the Disaster Recovery Journal magazine. Lee Goldstein, PPBI Board Member, wrote this piece, which explains the benefits of the networking and interpersonal relationships built up during their recent Los Angeles summit.
PPBI awarded the 2011 Best Practices Award to the CDC Foundation for their development and presentation of a series of "Meta-Leadership Summits" around the states. These Summits, lasting a full day, bring together leaders in the public sector, business sector, and non-profit sector in a community, discuss the dynamics of leadership in a community, and then present these leaders with a scenario that has serious continuity and readiness impact for the entire community.
Each of these sectors then develops a list of the things they would need in such a scenario, a list of the things they could contribute in such a scenario, and a list of things they would have to have in place to receive or contribute. The final hour is a compilation of pledges from each participant of what they will do in the next year to contribute to the overall readiness and preparedness of the community.
