A certified emergency manager and business continuity professional involved in developing international crisis management standards and Canada’s Critical Infrastructure Framework, will be a key speaker at this year’s Bordering on Disaster virtual conference.
Greg Solecki will speak at the half-day virtual kick off session on April 21 presented by Cenovus and organized by the City of Lloydminster.
In making the announcement, event planners note Solecki’s most recent assignment in leading the recovery operations for the flood event that struck Merritt, B.C. They add his presentation will bring fundamental teachings and knowledge from many aspects of the emergency management industry, including his experiences in disaster response and recovery.
City officials are expressing their delight at having Solecki as a keynote speaker, says Andrew DeGruchy, manager of emergency management with the City of Lloydminster.
“With Greg Solecki’s extensive knowledge and experience, he’ll provide valuable insights into the emergency management industry and inspire attendees to take action to improve their emergency management programs.”
The city will follow up with a two-day, in-person conference, scheduled for September 13-14 which will have several emergency management speakers, academics, a vendor trade show and breakout sessions.
