The 2022 Business Continuity Plan (BCP) Seminar and Workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, May 10, 2022 at the Santa Fe Springs Town Hall Center in Santa Fe Springs California. The BCP Seminar and Workshop are intended to promote the development and/or progression of Healthcare Business Continuity Planning.

The target audience for the events are healthcare emergency managers, hospital preparedness program (HPP) grant managers, and clinical directors of long term care centers, home health / hospice entities, and others directly responsible for continuity plans in the Los Angeles County Healthcare Coalition (HCC).

The event is intended to fully engage the HCC in a learning experience regardless of the current level of expertise or experience with business continuity plans.

HCC members are invited to register for one of the two 3-hour sessions. There will be a Workshop Session for those that are new or beginning with BCP scheduled from 7:30 am to 11:00 am followed by a Seminar Session for those more experienced with BCP scheduled from 12:30 pm to 4:00 pm.

Both sessions offer the option of attending in-person or virtually. Hospital recipients of HPP funds are required to attend the in-person Seminar Session and will have registration priority. All other HCC entities can attend the session of their choice either in-person or virtually.
