Webinars lasting 30 minutes are scheduled this week for interested parties as follows:

 "COOP has had Texas statewide agency customers for years. Late in 2013 we became aware of a new mandatory Texas standard called Crosswalk covering continuity planning for all statewide agencies.

In coming days COOP will be announcing availability through a large Texas Cooperative Contract reseller.
