Resilient Virginia, an organization dedicated to accelerating resilience planning in the state of Virginia, is co-organising this annual conference with the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) and the Office of the Chief Resiliency Officer.
This year’s theme is “Connecting Communities, Business, and Educators for Resiliency Solutions.”
It will also bring together participants from local and national businesses and representatives of higher education, governments, and community organizations to:
• Explore resiliency rationales for their organizations;
• Learn resiliency processes applicable to the public and private sectors;
• Develop an understanding of the priorities for different regions of the state; and
• Take away tools that can be used for resiliency planning in their own communities.
The 2017 Resilient Virginia Conference will build on the first conference, held in March 2016, to widen the representation from both the public and private sectors and to broaden the capacity to engage in resiliency planning.
