Disaster Planning and Organizational Resilience

Disaster Planning and Organizational Resilience
Saturday, May 5, 2018: 8:30 am - 12:30 pm Local governments are beset by forces that threaten to impair both their financial position and ability to deliver services. These forces can take the form of an extreme event like a natural disaster, a human- triggered event, or an economic downturn. They could also come in the form of social or environmental stressors that slowly wear down a local government, such as crime, homelessness, drug use, deteriorating infrastructure, or climate change. The practice of resiliency is to be prepared for forces to mitigate at their worst impact and to provide a structure that enables a bounce back as quickly as possible. At this session, you will learn from government leaders who have been on the forefront of developing resiliency plans and strategies and how the finance officer plays a role in the advanced planning for disaster preparedness.
