As low as $49 per board member (based on a 10-member board)

Is your organization prepared to operate in the event of a disaster? Do your board members know their roles and responsibilities should a crisis occur? In this course, you will learn how to define responsibilities and build a Continuity and Recovery plan to help safeguard operations in the event of major disruption.


It is certainly not safe to assume that the workplace will remain the same from one day to the next. There will eventually be significant events that will disrupt your organization beyond its normal operations at some point. A key responsibility for any board is to be fully prepared for the potential of a significant disruption by creating strategies and plans that can keep the key business functions operational while under distress – from smaller interruptions like extended power outages or lengthy storms to significantly more impactful disasters such as fire, acts of terror, cybercrime or pandemics.

With this course you will receive a detailed 10-page governance guide, 20-minute video training module and a sample governing policy you can start using today to put in place emergency measures and assign roles and responsibilities to board members in the event of disruption.
