Disaster-Resilient Calgary

Come to the PNWER Summit and learn more.

The Recovery Diva is always looking for information to share. She came up with this item, 'Resilient Calgary' to highlight natural disaster research, resilience in Alberta. While most of us won't be going to Calgary for that event, you might consider coming to the Pacific Northwest Economic Region's (PNWER) Summit in Portland, this coming July.

And, I've got a cheap way for you to attend. Register to attend the Disaster Resilience Symposium that will be embedded into the Summit. Tom Sampson, the head of Calgary's Emergency Management agency, will be on a panel with me where we discuss what disaster resilience is and how to define it. The cost for this two-day event is $195 and for another $100, you can attend the entire Summit (a real bargain!).
