Save the Date: Eighth ANSI-HSSP Plenary Scheduled for October 21

New York, Jul 09, 2009

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Homeland Security Standards Panel (HSSP) has announced that its eighth annual plenary will be held on October 21, 2009, in Washington, DC. This year’s meeting will focus on homeland security standards and their business application in the private sector.

The ANSI-HSSP plenary provides a unique opportunity for the homeland security, emergency preparedness, and business continuity communities – including public sector, private sector, and standards developing organizations – to come together to discuss current issues and challenges, strategic approaches, recent successes, and future outlooks. Past plenary attendees have praised not only the useful information sharing and dialogue during the formal program, but also the valuable networking and connections established for future collaboration.

The event will be held at the Renaissance Washington Hotel in Washington, DC.

Further details for the event, including an agenda, will be posted on the plenary web page as they become available.
