FEMA is partnering with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation to host the 11th Annual Building Resilience Through Private-Public Partnerships Conference in Washington, D.C. from July 28-29.
This year’s conference explores the need for readiness strategies and improving resilience while bringing together government, nonprofit and private sector leaders to drive effective resilience programing through greater collaboration across sectors.
FEMA Deputy Administrator Erik Hooks, Logistics Management Directorate Director Jeffrey Dorko, and Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) Section Chief Camille Crain are among the confirmed speakers for the 11th annual event.
The conference features action-oriented roundtables, engaging breakout sessions, substantive discussions and networking opportunities, including a Resilience Network Reception.
Communities depend on the reliability of emergency management systems and institutions to perform under duress, disruptions and disasters. This dependency and system interdependency is often forgotten until a crisis occurs. To better prepare it is important to strengthen partnerships before the next crisis.
The conference is free to attend. To register and learn more, visit U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation.
