Minnesota's leading business continuity and safety professionals will share their insights and best practices at the 3rd Annual Business & Emergency Risk Management (BERM) Conference, on Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at Hennepin Technical College in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota.

BERM, sponsored by Hennepin Technical College, was developed in response to the business community’s request for a dedicated emergency risk management conference as an extension of the Minnesota Symposium of Terrorism and Emergency Preparedness (M-STEP) conference, now entering its 14th year.

The President of the Metropolitan Emergency Managers Association (MEMA), Sarah Hellekson, believes that “ BERM aligns with the MEMA outreach mission in that MEMA strives to engage our private sector Emergency Management professionals, because they play an essential role in how we work together to prepare for and respond to disasters in our own community”.

Mike Colestock, Associate Dean for Public and Emergency Services Careers, agrees that " We’ve been very fortunate with this conference; some of Minnesota’s largest employers have shared their best practices in risk management and business continuity with companies that don’t normally have access to that level of expertise.  As the conference has grown, we’ve seen more and more organizations step up to offer their support and that’s a wonderful statement about Minnesota’s business leaders and safety professionals.”
