The AHC's mission is to promote the coordination of public and private sector resources to enhance the nation's ability to prepare for, respond to, and recover from all hazards. The AHC achieves this mission by facilitating communication and collaboration between its members and providing them with access to resources and information.

As an organization, AHC has seen you how important it was to establish a strong presence in the Disaster Response Community given the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite their best efforts to hold a live event in the fall of 2021, obstacles such as, social distancing and liabilities, kept them from gaining traction. They tried booking venue locations, but were often met with untenable requirements given the uncertainty of business travel.

The AHC faced several challenges during its development and implementation, including:
  • Limited resources - As a non-profit organization, AHC had limited resources to devote to the REXCH. The team had to work with a small budget and a limited staff, which made it challenging to develop and execute a comprehensive virtual event.
  • Technical difficulties - Given the sudden shift to virtual events caused by the pandemic, AHC had limited experience with virtual event planning and execution. As a result, the team had to overcome several technical challenges, such as ensuring that all participants could access and engage with the webinars.
  • Limited attendance - Given the ongoing pandemic and the flood of virtual events occurring at the same time, AHC faced challenges in attracting and retaining a large audience for the REXCH. The team had to develop effective marketing and outreach strategies to ensure that the webinars reached a broad audience.

"I was frustrated with the lack of results we were seeing from our live onsite event plans. I knew that leadership was important for our organization, but I wasn't sure how to make it work for us." 

- Tom Moran, CEO of All Hazards Consortium


To address limited resources and technical difficulties in planning and executing their virtual summit, the AHC implemented strategic partnerships with other organizations, collaborative planning with subject-matter experts, and robust marketing strategies through various channels. 

They also worked with Tier1 Marketing Solutions to ensure that the technical aspects of the virtual summit were seamless and user-friendly.

To overcome these challenges, AHC implemented several solutions, including:
  • Strategic partnerships - AHC partnered with several organizations, including the NBEOC and FEMA, to develop and promote the REXCH. These partnerships helped to increase the summits’ visibility and attract a larger audience.
  • Collaborative planning - AHC collaborated with its partners, communication director, and subject matter experts to plan and develop the REXCH content. This approach allowed the team to leverage expertise and resources from multiple sources and develop a comprehensive and high-quality virtual summit.
  • Robust marketing - Tier1 Marketing Solutions developed a robust marketing strategy to promote the REXCH. The team used various channels, including advertisement (PPC), social media, email marketing, and targeted outreach to relevant stakeholders, to reach a broad audience.
  • Technical support - AHC worked with Tier1 Marketing Solutions to ensure that the technical aspects of the REXCH, such as platform accessibility and summit registration, were seamless and user-friendly.
