Speakers & Sessions

Session I:  See Something? Say Something! Terrorism Awareness in Your Community Association
Speakers: Stacy Irving, Senior Advisor for Homeland Security Planning, Programs & Strategic Partnerships, Delaware Valley Intelligence Center (DVIC) Philadelphia Police Department

It's easy to take for granted the routine moments in our everyday — going to work or school, the grocery store, or the gas station. But your every day is different than your neighbor’s — filled with the moments that make it uniquely yours. So if you see something you know shouldn't be there — or someone's behavior doesn't seem quite right — say something. Because only you know what’s supposed to be in your everyday. Informed, alert communities play a critical role in keeping our nation safe. This session will focus on how building staff can maintain awareness, and partnerships, and outreach and strategies to keep your condo, community, and country safe. e, or the gas station.

Session II:  Handle with Care: Safety in the Workplace
Speakers: Frank Bruzzese and Ken Hildebrand, Zenith Insurance

Workplace safety is serious business. Management and all staff have a responsibility to manage the risks associated with potentially hazardous workplace conditions. The key to a successful workplace safety program, in addition to implementing best practices, includes identifying unsafe activities and behavior in the performance of daily routines. This session will discuss critical elements of any workplace safety plan, including:
  • Manual Material Handling: Handling heavy, bulky, or awkwardly shaped items.
  • Repetitive Motion: Repetitive tasks with potential for muscle fatigue, over-exertion, etc.
  • Machinery and equipment use, maintenance, and repair
  • Slip and Falls
  • Occupational Disease
  • Motor Vehicles
  • Catastrophic Potential such as group transportation, explosion, chemical release, etc
  • Injury Management

Session III:  The Art & Science of Communication in the Workplace
Speaker: Chuck Homler, CMCA, AMS, FirstService Residential Management

Communication is a science and many people do not contemplate how communication works.  But it’s also an art and is very personal, so how you communicate affects more than just the specifics of your message and how you convey it.  We'll touch upon the inherently unstable relationship of words and meanings, the communications channel and how messages are transmitted.  Additionally, there will be a short explanation of semantics, grammar and logic.
