What happens when a community faces a major economic disruption? Whether it is natural (fire, tornado, floods) or manmade (plant closures); what are some best practices public and private stakeholders should understand to rebuild communities and build resilience?
This session will focus on what some communities have done to rebuild and restore their economy. Presenters will specifically address the Economic Disaster Recovery Project (EDRP) and provide highlights from the project that is currently underway. There will also be an interactive mock disaster exercise. Come prepared to learn and have some fun!
Moderator: Richard Pauls, 2013-14 President, EDA
