The discussion will be facilitated by Roland Corvington, assistant vice president and director of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, and panel members will include David Bixler and Christina Holbrook, program leaders of Enterprise Threat Management with the Boeing Company; Major Donovan Kenton, deputy chief of Operations with the St. Charles Police Department; and William Naughton, senior manager of Security and Fire Protection with the Boeing Company — Midwest/East Region.
