Based on the facilitated discussions focused on Reopening Centers during the ABPM conference last month and feedback from the ‘ABPM Task Force on Considerations for Reopening Centers', ABPM has updated the "Considerations for Reopening Centers" document. The document is a practical guide and living document intended to help briefing teams and their key stakeholders consider the many aspects of reopening briefing centers and welcoming customers back to a safe, and comfortable environment, while keeping staff safe as well.
The 19th Annual ABPM World Class Briefing Awards Ceremony was produced by the highly skilled and creative Downstream team and released on the final day of the 2020 "Spring" Virtual Conference. We always look forward to the annual ceremony because it provides the opportunity to honor World Class achievement in Program excellence and Center design. That's an accomplishment truly worthy of celebration. We believe the term “World Class” is often used too casually. But ABPM has set high bars when defining criteria for both programs and centers. Here are the honorees recognized for World Class achievement, along with selected comments from the jurors.
ABPM's Core and Advanced Competency Curriculum (CCC and ACC) are a set of suggested career development curriculum customized for briefing professionals. The curriculum is regularly reviewed to ensure that it is mapped to the most recent version of the Characteristics of World Class Briefing Programs and that it remains relevant for an evolving membership.
