A session on business continuity planning and risk management will feature a panel discussion with Joan Woodward, president of the Travelers Institute, Robert Bouvier, president of Bouvier Insurance, and Marty Henry, senior vice president of Risk Control at The Travelers Companies, Inc.

A discussion of emergency preparedness strategies will include Ed Goldberg, manager of Connecticut Light & Power/Northeast Utilities’ Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, and Threat Assessment Programs, Mark Moriarty, New Britain director of Public Works, and a representative from the American Red Cross.

There will also be a live table top disaster response exercise to provide hands-on knowledge for attendees.
