Private Sector Representation

I think that it ould be very imporatnt to include private sector representatives from the critical infrastructure groups who are charged with emergency management and contingency planning. I spent over 28 years in state law enforcement and found that the communication process, although improved over that time frame, was very lacking between government and key private industry stakeholders. As the person responsible for building and testing my organizations DR plans in the financial industry sector, I feel as though we are often left out of the big picture being developed by local, state, and federal governments.
