BOLDplanning Conducts Workshops, Leaves Pennsylvania Senate More Resilient and Better Prepared

Ensuring the continuity of a legislative body is not something BOLDplanning takes lightly. Neither does the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and Secretary of the Senate, Megan Martin. She, along with several others, recently made the decision to make the Senate body a more resilient and prepared organization. And BOLDplanning, of course, was (and is) there to help every step of the way.

Just this week, BOLDplanning Operations Manager, Will Minkoff, and Customer Success Program team member, Karla O’Grady, held two plan development workshops to ensure the group’s understanding of the continuity plan and its execution.

At BOLDplanning, we take our role in such projects to heart, and do everything within our power to ensure our clients’ success. We are thrilled to support the emergency/continuity planning efforts of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and look forward to helping others at all levels of government and across the nation to achieve their continuity planning goals as well.

 

BOLDplanning Takes Next Big Step to Finalize COOP Project in Georgia

The BOLDplanning team is happy to announce that we’re now putting the finishing touches on a project that will support the resiliency of one of the most populous and traveled-to cities in America—Atlanta, Georgia. Not so long ago, the Atlanta-Fulton County Emergency Management Agency (AFCEMA) contracted with BOLDplanning to develop a Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) for its critical county departments. And just last week, BOLDplanning CEO, Fulton J. Wold, personally concluded plan finalization workshops to move the project toward completion.

BOLDplanning, as always, is thrilled to be involved in such important public (and private) sector planning initiatives. The company currently works with several clients throughout the Atlanta Metro area (five out of seven metro counties), and across the entire U.S. On behalf of BOLDplanning, thank you, AFCEMA, for the opportunity to help you take the next step toward building a better, stronger emergency planning strategy.

We look forward to assisting in the months and years ahead!
