Airmic has joined forces with three leading professional membership organisation to form the Resilience Alliance with the aim of developing and promoting resilience globally. Airmic, ASIS InternationalThe BCI, and the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management, have each signed a Memorandum of Understanding.

The Resilience Alliance will address the implications of the changes and sudden disruptions such as those faced by organisations already in 2020. The goal is to convert the benefit of the collective specialisms of member organisations through collaboration. It also aims to develop and promote a common mutual understanding of what is meant by the term ‘resilience’.

“It is important that we work with risk professionals across the spectrum to demonstrate what we believe that resilience is a team game and that together we are stronger,” said John Ludlow, CEO of Airmic.

The Resilience Alliance member organisations’ united presence at Airmic Fest demonstrates our intent, embracing the theme: ‘Working together in a time of accelerated change.’

“The Resilience Alliance is a fantastic opportunity to drive change in organisations, making them fitter and ultimately more ‘risk intelligent’. The events of 2020 have shown us we live in a fast moving, volatile and connected world - one that is constantly changing and where working in silos is no longer an option.

“Airmic is delighted to work with our fellow Resilience Alliance members on the projects and thought leadership issues, across public platforms, which will demonstrate the power of collaboration.”

The Resilience Alliance will undertake joint communication and thought leadership initiatives and research projects on the good practices organisations can develop and adopt.

Members will be also encouraged to share their professional knowledge, supporting the collaboration of the respective professionals in a complex, connected and high velocity world.

The Resilience Alliance Chair and Secretariat will be rotational between the member bodies on a yearly basis from 1 April, starting with The BCI. The incumbent secretariat will agree immediate and longer terms plans and priorities.
