Economic Disaster Resilience & Recovery Workshop 

Disasters don't discriminate. Floods, fires and other natural disasters can happen without warning. Factory closures, cyber security breaches and major industry shifts can also cause significant economic disruptions. 

Are you prepared? A disaster can happen anytime, anywhere, and its economic impacts can be catastrophic.

EDA's one-day workshop is guaranteed to help elected officials, economic development officers and other community leaders prepare for and recover from a disaster. Our workshop delivers practical steps to help lessen damages to your local economy.

EDA will travel to your community to deliver this workshop. When you book this workshop tell us where and when you would like it to take place.
