Beginning January 3rd, the City of Chicago is requiring that everyone 5 years and older be fully vaccinated in order to drink or dine at an indoor private event space. Therefore, please be advised that attendees will need to provide the East Bank Club with proof of full vaccination (vaccine card, photo of vaccine card, etc.) as well as a valid photo ID upon arrival.The East Bank Club will not allow entry to anyone who does not meet these requirements. Further information can be found on the City of Chicago website.

TOPIC: "Protecting” Facilities: How to Manage and Control Your Client’s Expectations About Your Role On The Site

Description: Security providers often sign contracts that have all the legal “nuts and bolts” in them without knowing - specifically - what the client expects them to do on the site. This can lead to confusion, distrust and, worst case, early notices of termination. Avoiding this outcome takes a little more work on the front end, but it’s worth it. We’ll discuss how to learn and address client expectations – in your contract, in your post orders, and through your actions onsite.

Learning Objectives:

  • Negotiate easy-to-understand contract language that defines the scope of your engagement.
  • Limit your liability by making sure your contract spells out what you’re NOT responsible for.
  • Work with the client to develop practical post orders – complete with real-world hypotheticals you don’t want to be on the hook for.
  • Train your staff how to avoid performing site activities that likely will, in a future judge’s eyes, expand the scope of the duties you intended to take on.

The United States Secret Service has been protecting our nation’s leaders since 1901. Part of that protection involves investigating, identifying, assessing, and managing individuals and groups who have threatened and/or shown an unusual direction of interest. In 1998, the U.S. Secret Service conducted an operational analysis of persons known to have engaged in incidents of attack and near attack behaviors on prominent persons of public status. This study resulted in the implementation of significant policy changes in the way the U.S. Secret Service conducts protective intelligence investigations.

In 2002, the U.S. Secret Service National Threat Assessment Center was established to conduct research, training, and consultation on threat assessment and the prevention of targeted violence, including attacks against government facilities and personnel, law enforcement, K-12 schools, colleges/universities, workplaces and mass attacks in public spaces. NTAC has published several studies and conducted training to assist with averting and preventing acts of targeted violence.

Learning Objectives:

  • Proactively identify individuals who may be exhibiting concerning behaviors.
  • Assess whether individuals pose a risk of violence, or other harmful behavior, to themselves or others.
  • Develop risk management strategies and proactive interventions.
