The ILCMA  Professional Development Committee Presents:  “Emergency Disaster Planning:  Is Your Community Ready?”

Natural and man-made disasters can strike in any community at any moment. Is your community ready for a flood? A tornado? A train derailment? In many instances, if you have to develop a plan for how to address an emergency during the emergency it may already be too late. This session will help managers, assistants, and other department heads develop actionable plans to develop organizational resiliency and respond to emergency disasters. An urban planner, a waterfront engineer, and a chief innovation officer will walk you through the steps to prepare for various threats in Illinois and highlight pilot projects currently underway in Peoria. Crisis communications expert Dave Bayless will help you develop actionable steps to make sure your message is clear, consistent and actionable to communicate with the media and stakeholders when disaster strikes.

Panelists will include:

  • Valerie Berstene, Architect & Urban Design, SmithGroup
  • Mark Wagstaff, Senior Water Front Engineer, SmithGroup
  • Anthony Corso, Chief Innovation Officer, City of Peoria
  • Dave Bayless, Principal and Founder, Bayless Communications

Please join the Metro Managers for the March Luncheon:  “Should you be Worried about a Ransomeware Attack?”

Municipalities are increasingly being targeted by ransomware, or malicious software intended to block access to computer systems until a ransom is paid. These attacks can come without warning and affect vital public safety, records and operating systems. Learn more about the signs and trends in ransomware affecting cities and villages, the business impacts that can occur when ransomware infects your system and how to prevent and respond to a ransomware attack.
Speakers Danish Ali, Nino Spuria and Ashley Smith of InterDev will present a state of the industry for municipal information technology systems and tips you need to know to manage ransomware in your organization, as well as real life examples you can implement today to prevent a future attack.
