New Event Manager App Makes Event Organization and Registration Easy
The new VCP Event Manager App provides users with a simple way to schedule and coordinate events like webinars, in-person training, educational events, conferences, and workshops. Now you can create private, semi-private, and public events that will allow you to manage registrants’ profile information in your secure VCP Initiative, rather than on a public event management websites. Non-VCP users can register for your semi-private and public events from a public-facing website, and you can capture and store their registration information within your VCP Initiative.
Event Manager features include:
- Internal registration page design wizard
- Public-facing registration page designer
- Email templates
- Status workflow email notifications
- Ability to export invitation and registration lists to Excel
Argonne successfully piloted the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA), Virtual Business Emergency Operations Center (vBEOC) App during the five-day, multi-state Capstone-14 exercise in June. The vBEOC App facilitated the rapid dissemination and exchange of critical situational awareness information among public and private sector responders to help reduce the deaths, injuries, property damage, and economic impacts that would have been expected to result from a major New Madrid Seismic Zone event.
According to the Illinois Emergency Management Agency’s vBEOC Mission Director, Jonathan Monken, “The test of the vBEOC app on Argonne’s Virtual Community Platform during the Capstone 14 Exercise marks a significant leap forward in how information is shared and response and recovery are coordinated between the public and private sectors. For the first time, a single point of access gave participants the means to communicate and visualize information coming in from 440 counties in 7 states in an unprecedented fashion. With continued commitment and development we can fundamentally change the way we prepare for, respond to, recover from and mitigate against disasters at all levels.”
