At a time when the federal government is attempting to reduce the ever-increasing debt, hurricanes and other disasters will continue to strike, with the potential to overwhelm our disaster-response programs. The nation must come together to develop long-term solutions starting with an examination of how communities can build better, smarter, and more resilient infrastructure, to reduce costs and save lives in future disasters.

Join us for a live webcast on April 24 to look at recovery efforts in California, Houston, and other areas impacted by recent natural disasters, and to examine how federal policies help or hinder those efforts.
