Lessons Learned from the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival Shooting (Lyrasis)
This session will reflect on lessons for all parties involved in large pop-up location event planning and mass casualty response. Learning outcomes will include: considerations for security and safety in pop-up venues, coordination concepts with local government partners, understanding the response and recovery process, considerations for integration of non-traditional response partners and trauma care for survivors and staff. Concepts such as how to integrate those who may not think they have a role (such as the hotels that became triage and shelter centers with no warning) will be covered. Insight will be provided on how survivors of traumatic events get information regarding hospitals, Family Assistance Centers, and recovery resources, especially when watching the news is experiencing the trauma all over again.

Recordation System Monthly Webinar (U.S. Copyright Office)
On August 1, 2022, the Copyright Office expanded access to the Recordation System to the full public. Separate from the Office’s registration application, this new module allows users to transfer their copyright to someone else electronically. Currently, the Recordation System can process documents that fall under section 205 of Title 17 but not notifications of termination. To keep the public informed about the Recordation System, the Office hosts a monthly, forty-five-minute webinar that covers announcements about the module, important reminders, frequently asked questions, and a live question-and-answer session.

Training Industry Leader Talk: Informal Leadership Development (Training Industry)
Leadership development should give leaders the tools and skills they need to manage teams and impact change. When considering leadership training, we often think of events and intensive retreats, but a more informal approach might be a better answer for longevity, application and even the bottom line. Rather than a structured training event, informal learning happens in the flow of the leader’s workday providing just-in-time training and feedback. During this Training Industry Leader Talk, we will examine the various methods to establish an informal leadership development approach from coaching and mentoring to microlearning.
