Event Details

On April 20, 2010, an explosion and fire on the BP-licensed Transocean drilling rig Deepwater Horizon leaves 11 people missing, 17 injured, and the beginning of an international nightmare.

Just a few days later, water is even more top of mind for Massachusetts residents when a major water main break leads to boil water orders for 2 million residents around the Boston area.

When a crisis occurs, local, state, regional, national and sometimes international organizations (on both the public and the private side) spring into action to coordinate efforts. In many regards, social media makes this easier and easier to manage. But concerns exist: for example, how do you manage the spread of misinformation?

A panel of practitioners will talk through what happens -- and what should happen -- when a crisis strikes. Our moderator will be Ellen Rossano, principal of Crisis Media Consultants. Panelists include Jess Weiss, New Media Liason for Governor Patrick's office; and Anna Waclawiczek from the Department of Agricultural Resources.

Stay tuned for program details. Reception begins at 6pm, panel discussion kicks off at 7pm. Food and drink will be provided at the reception.
