The place to hear about and learn to apply disaster research.
It has been several years since I've written about the Annual Natural Hazards Workshop.
This year's sessions will have an emphasis on convergence. Way back when — when I could attend for a couple of years, I found the sessions very stimulating to be in as a practitioner. I highly encourage emergency managers who have the wherewithal to attend to make it a priority for their 2019 travel budget. Skip the IAEM Conference for once, and learn something new: out-of-the-box thinking that you can apply back home in your community.
