Dear Board of Directors, 

Enclosed is a copy of the brochure Regional Coalitions: Public-Private Partnerships for the Financial Services Sector jointly issued by the Financial and Banking Information Infrastructure Committee (FBIIC)1 and the Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council for Critical Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security (FSSCC).2   

Regional coalitions are voluntary organizations that have been formed to achieve a common goal of facilitating the recovery of the financial services sector following a natural disaster or man-made attack. The coalitions are open to all members of the financial services sector.  

The brochure outlines the benefits of joining a regional coalition, including the ability to network with strategic partners within other critical sectors. The brochure includes a list of the existing regional coalitions. It also provides contact information on existing coalitions should you be interested in finding more about them, joining one, or starting one in your area.

If you have any questions, please contact the FBIIC via e-mail at fbiic@do.treas.gov.

Sincerely,
/S/
JoAnn Johnson
Chairman
