NTSB crisis management training seminar at ABA Marketplace
The American Bus Association (ABA) announced that the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) plans to conduct a one-day Crisis Management Training Seminar at the conclusion of ABA’s Marketplace 2013 in Charlotte, NC, on January 10, 2013.
ABA is also pleased that National Interstate Insurance, one of the nation’s largest leading specialty property and casualty insurance holding companies, is the exclusive sponsor of the event. National Interstate offers more than 30 different insurance products, including traditional insurance, innovative alternative risk transfer (ART) programs for commercial companies and insurance for specialty vehicle owners.
This comprehensive training program led by top staff of the NTSB will take motorcoach owners, operators, general managers, communications managers, dispatchers, safety directors and others through the steps of how the NTSB investigates an accident, the NTSB’s family assistance program, what your company’s role is in the investigation, crisis communication messaging and how to deal and work with the media. This is the first time this program has ever been offered to the motorcoach industry.
Because of the sponsorship of National Interstate Insurance, the NTSB one-day seminar will cost only $199 per attendee. Attendance is limited to the first 50 people who sign up.
“We are very pleased to work closely with the top-flight professionals at the NTSB to provide this comprehensive educational program to our members,” said ABA President and CEO Peter Pantuso. “ABA and BISC members are some of the best motorcoach owner/operators in North America, and we want to continue to improve the safety and reliability of our industry. This one-day seminar on Crisis Management Communications is an excellent class.”
