Registration Now Open: Second Workshop to Develop a Community-Scale Disaster Resilience Framework


6/25/2014 9:50 AM

You are invited to attend the second in a series of workshops organized by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to develop a community-scale approach to disaster resilience, to be held July 30, 2014, at the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ.

Registration for this workshop is now open, http://www.nist.gov/el/building_materials/resilience/2nd-disaster-resilience-workshop.cfm.

Participation is open to all stakeholders with an interest in disaster resilience, including, but not limited to, planners, designers, engineers, and contractors; facility owners, managers and users; local, state and federal government officials; utility owners, operators and regulators; members of standards and model code development organizations; insurers and re-insurers; industry and professional associations; disaster response and recovery groups; and academic experts.

Highlights of the day: An expert panel will discuss the community resilience lessons from Superstorm Sandy before working groups of participants convene to develop sector-specific chapters of the Framework.
