Register for the 8th Annual Building Resilience through
Private-Public Partnerships Conference
There is still time to register for the 8th Annual Building Resilience through Private-Public Partnerships (PPP) Conference hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. The conference, supported by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and U.S. Northern Command will take place on July 23 and 24 at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C. Now in its eighth year, the PPP conference focuses on the collaboration required among private, public, and nonprofit sectors to help mitigate the effects of natural and human-made disasters and improve the overall resilience of individuals, businesses, and communities. To this end, it is not only building individual capacity towards resilience, but providing coordination needed to protect the whole community.
As disasters continue to increase in frequency and level of devastation, we will examine the opportunity for the private sector to take a leading role in preparing, coordinating, and responding to disasters. With the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation as a leading resource and voice for businesses and their social and community interests, we expect more than 300 business, government, and civil society leaders to participate in this event. Reserve your spot at the PPP conference today!
Please help support FEMA’s mission of “Helping people before, during and after disasters.”
The 2018-2022 Strategic Plan creates a shared vision for the field of emergency management and sets an ambitious, yet achievable, path forward to unify and further professionalize emergency management across the country. We invite all of our stakeholders and partners to also adopt these priorities and join us in building a stronger Agency and a more prepared and resilient Nation.
