Life happens.  Whether it’s an accident that leaves someone laid up in the hospital for two months, a life changing event or a sudden tragedy, unexpected things happen every day that change everything.  The question is not if something will happen, it’s when.  You can never be completed prepared for how a sudden event will change someone’s life, but you can prepare your business for the unexpected.  Our experts will explain how to develop a contingency plan and the critical elements of that plan.


Identify the elements of a successful contingency plan.
