Crisis Communication Checklist for Associations
A crisis at your Association can take several forms, such as a data breach, a situation involving a member, or a weather-related incident, to name a few. Whatever the crisis is, it can have a serious impact on your Association, which is why you should have a crisis communication plan in place that outlines specific framework for a variety of situations. To help you with your efforts, NAR has created a Crisis Communication Checklist for Associations. It can be used as the first step in creating a crisis communication plan or it can be seamlessly incorporated into an already existing plan.
