THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FROM APRIL 14 TO AUGUST 4, 2020.

The focus of this year’s Summit will be Hurricane Harvey and other catastrophic events: lessons learned and growth from experience. The Summit will focus on:

  • Gathering knowledge to adapt to, withstand, or more rapidly recover from a disaster or catastrophic event
  • Gaining an understanding of methods to improve preparedness, communication, and coordination during a disaster/catastrophic event in Southeast Texas
  • Exploring options for disaster/catastrophic event community resources in Southeast Texas related to industry, governmental, or healthcare
  • Beginning a dialogue with other stakeholders to build a resilient community in Southeast Texas

If you have conducted research or work with community members with a Harvey recovery effort that could contribute we invite you to submit a proposal. Call for abstracts will be coming soon. Submissions will be accepted between September 27 – October 31.
