Welcome from Task Force Chair Kathleen Strickland
Thank you Randy. As Chair of this Task Force, under your leadership, I would like to welcome everyone to this Blog and to participate in all programs we are presenting during this year long Initiative. We will be starting our Initiative with a series of 10 programs in September commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the tragedy of September 11th. These programs, 90 minutes in length, will be presented by each of 10 different General Committees of TIPS, and will begin on September 6, 2011 and continue through September 19, 2011. We hope you will all be able to participate in all or some of them. These programs are presented in partnership with West LegalEdcenter, part of ThomsonReuters. Links to all of the programs in this series will be coming soon. For the remaining portion of the year, preceding the 4 TIPS Meetings (Fall, Midyear, Spring and Annual) there will be two podcasts previewing the subjects of the specific panels at each meeting on the theme of Disaster Preparedness and Response. In the meantime, we hope you will share with us on this site your comments and ideas. Thank you for reading.
