P-Cards: The Right Tool for Emergency Response Operations
Wednesday, May 9, 2012
Note: This webinar was originally scheduled for February 29, 2012, but the speaker had to reschedule due to a medical leave.


Regardless of your industry sector, having a relief plan for emergencies is essential to business continuity. Join us for this webinar and learn from an end-user who has "been there/done that,” so you do not need to reinvent the wheel when it comes to figuring out the role of P-Cards before, during and after an emergency. This webinar, led by Karen Rodgers, CPCP, will address:
  • issues to consider from start to finish
  • how to set up cards
  • when to put cards into action
  • roles and responsibilities for key cardholders
  • considerations for tracking documentation for FEMA
  • lessons learned
As a result of attending this webinar, you will have a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of an emergency preparedness plan, enabling you to:
  • develop or refine your P-Card program to include disaster recovery
  • enhance cardholder guides to include roles and responsibilities before, during and after an emergency
  • promote and communicate the plan within your organization

Target Audience

Attendees should have a basic understanding of P-Card fundamentals
