what it's about

Employers and employees are underestimating the disruption coming because of Metro’s SafeTrack work.

While we support doing the 3 years of track work in an accelerated fashion, there is no getting around the fact that this will not be the typical “single-track” work we’ve all become “used to”.

The Board of Trade, in conjunction with Witt O'Brien's, a top preparedness company, and the Washington Business Journal, have developed a detailed specific plan to assist businesses in managing through this pending difficulty.

We have teamed with the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments to provide all the necessary guidance, updates, resource materials and contact information for the wide variety of available resources you will want to know about in order to develop workable alternatives for your company and your employees.

There is no charge to this special briefing, but registration is required and limited to 200 seats.

The briefing for the Pope’s visit last September, sold out immediately. Please reserve your spot right away —registration will be available through the weekend.
