Hallmark Abstract Service and the Long Island Fight for Charity!

Long Island Fight For Charity

Michael Haltman, President of Hallmark Abstract Service, is one of  the first members of the Long Island business community to be selected to participate as one of the fighters in the 2013 Long Island Fight for Charity!

The following article appeared in Long Island Newsday recapping the event on November 19, 2012 at the Long Island Hilton at which Michael and the other 7 fighters were announced. In the coming months another 12 to 18 fighters will be selected.

If anyone is interested in participating as a sponsor for Michael he can be reached at orders@hallmarkabstractllc.com.

First 8 chosen for 2013 LI charity boxing event

Eight members of the business community now have a little over one year to get in fighting shape for the 10th Long Island Fight for Charity exhibition boxing event.

At a Monday night meeting to preview the charity fight, the organizers revealed the first eight volunteers — chosen from members of the local business community — who will participate in boxing matchups at the event slated to take place Nov. 25, 2013.

About 12 to 16 more volunteer boxers will be announced periodically at preview events leading up to next year’s fight, for a total of 20 to 24 fighters.

The first eight participants’ business backgrounds include manufacturing, the nonprofit sector, real estate and advertising.

One of the volunteer boxers, Kevin Kelly, the chief creative officer at Big Buzz Marketing Group in Melville, said his only disappointment was that the matchup was so far in the future.

“I had boxed a little as a kid and my great grandfather was a pro boxer . . . so it’s in my blood,” Kelly, 45, said. Kelly also participated in the 2012 fight, which took place in March, and said he has continued his training.

Long Island Fight for Charity began in 2003 and has raised over $700,000 for local charities.

The first eight volunteer boxers are:

1. Keith Dawson, of Prudential Douglas Elliman in Patchogue.

2. Anthony Giallanzo, of Ultimate Performance and Fitness in Glen Cove.

3. Michael Haltman, of Hallmark Abstract Service LLC in Woodbury.

4. Joanne Hutchins, of Moms Who Kick Inc.in Bayville.

5. Kevin Kelly, of Big Buzz Marketing Group in Melville.

6. Bill Mabanta, of Lab Crafters in Ronkonkoma.

7. Leaf Steuernagel, of Veteran Landscaping in Bellport.

8. Chris Whittelsey, of NBC Solutions Corp. in Huntington Station.

business continuity, business interruption, disaster preparedness

Business continuity and disaster preparedness! (Reprint)

For those of us in the northeast who have been battered by Hurricane Sandy the topic of disaster preparedness and business continuity strikes very close to home!

First I’d like to send my sincerest hope that all who have endured this disaster are as unscathed as possible and that family and friends are safe and well.

While for some, myself included the power and heat have been slow to return, in the scheme of the unimaginable suffering being faced by some in the northeast this is certainly a small inconvenience to bear.

Back in August, 2012 I had attended a presentation on the topic of how businesses should prepare for a crisis that is outside of its control and one that could potentially shut their business down.

It could be a building that is inaccessible due to flooding or data that is unretrievable due to a power outage or, as with Hurricane Sandy, potentially both

In light of this most recent natural disaster I wanted to reprint the article and offer the power point presentation to anyone who would like to receive it. If you are interested you can simply email me at mhaltman@hallmarkabstractllc.com.

“How prepared is your business for an event that has the potential to shut you down, force a dislocation of key employees and/or potentially compromise your stored data?”

Recently I had the good fortune to attend a presentation given by a gentleman whose expertise fell in this area that most of us are aware needs to be addressed but that typically isn’t. It’s kind of the business equivalent of estate planning for individuals.

He spoke about crisis management, business continuity planning and information protection that is in essence contingency planning for some exogenous event that is beyond the control of a business, unforeseeable and that could be devastating to the ability to conduct operations.

It would be a plan that once implemented “will mitigate those risks and protect critical business functions, assets and information with fast, comprehensive emergency response a key component to recovery.”

This type of plan will of course vary from business to business and from industry to industry but the basic premise is the same. Maintaining some semblance of business as usual that will keep a going concern going!

An example that he used was a steam-pipe rupturing in the heart of mid-town Manhattan that caused the evacuation of office buildings in the general vicinity. It was an evacuation that would last for an undetermined amount of time.

For companies that were unprepared for this type of event the result would have been devastating with critical information unaccessible, employees and management dislocated and business basically coming to a standstill.

Contrast that to a company that had a plan in place, systems and information duplicated and stored offsite, key personnel knowing exactly where to go and the ability to at least maintain a necessary level of operations until either the crisis passed or further plans were developed and implemented.

Once again, if you are interested in receiving the power point presentation you can simply email me at mhaltman@hallmarkabstractllc.com.
