Vendor Policy Statement AHC Mission: The All Hazards Consortium (AHC) exists to form a network of organizations and individuals who share a common interest in improving the capacity of our region to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from crises. We strive to unite these stakeholders around a common culture where public benefit takes priority over profit, politics or professional gain. As the AHC continues to engage the private sector, we strive to create an environment and culture that is respectful of all parties and their roles. The AHC provides guidance to our private sector vendors and sponsors at AHC meetings on how to present themselves and their solutions in a way that helps government leaders & listeners link the solution to government’s key requirements and issues. The AHC discourages aggressive behavior and sales pitches by any organization. With the exception of some organizations new to the AHC, this policy has proven very successful over the past 5 years and most all of the corporate sponsors have embraced and honored this philosophy.
