Event: Annual Conference - DRI2013

Author: Bobby Williams and Chloe Demrovsky

Clear communication is critical to effective crisis management. Yet even among our own professionals, there are discrepancies in how we describe what we do including some of our most basic activities. This presentation will explain how a group of DRI volunteers has pulled industry terminology from 22 reference documents including standards and regulations from around the world as well as professional glossaries to create a comprehensive global resource. The presenters invite you to participate in what promises to be a lively discussion about industry terminology and sources. We want to hear from you about which definitions you use, what we are missing, and how you would like to participate in this process moving forward. After we have incorporated your feedback, the glossary will be made public as a free resource on the DRI website.
