Resilience & Risk Committee

ABOUT NABA-RRC

The Resilience & Risk Committee (NABA-RRC) works to help raise members’ awareness of the hazards and risks that impact the continuity of our business, the safety of our people and the successful recovery to business-as-usual in the event of a disruption. The RRC also provides a framework and communication channel to enhance the identification and awareness of risk-related topics concerning NABA members.

From February 2020 to Spring 2021, the NABA-RRC held monthly calls for members to discuss the COVID-19 pandemic. This provided an opportunity to ask candid questions of colleagues from other companies and to share best practices.
