Business Roundtable’s Partnership for Disaster Response Volunteer Workshop

April 16th, 2008 · No Comments

Today, I am moderating a workshop, “Training Your Employees to Volunteer During a Disaster,” sponsored by the Business Roundtable’s Partnership for Disaster Response being held at the headquarters of the American Red Cross in Washington, D.C. 

The event is designed for company representatives from public affairs, human resource management, philanthropy, volunteer programs and disaster response. It will feature Business Roundtable members Fannie Mae, IBM and W.W. Grainger.

The Roundtable’s “Partnership for Disaster Response” ( works to expand and enhance the private sector’s response to disasters – beyond financial contributions – to accelerate on-the-ground relief and recovery activities following major disasters.

I will report on the workshop later in the day or tomorrow.
