PIE Webinar on New York and Colorado State Resiliency Initiatives

On September 22, from 2:00pm – 3:00pm (eastern), the American Planning Association (APA) and the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) will conduct a free webinar entitled, “State Resiliency Initiatives: From Issue to Action!”  This is the eighth webinar in the Planning Information Exchange (PIE) quarterly webinar series focusing on tools, best practices, and strategies on the role of hazard mitigation planning and its connections with recovery planning and preparedness.  This webinar will feature discussions with Bill Nechamen, Chief of Floodplain Management for New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, and Iain Hyde, Deputy Director of Colorado Governor’s Resiliency & Recovery Office.  During the webinar, participants will hear about how two different statewide approaches are being implemented to better enable their communities and citizens to be more resilient. The conversation will focus on the drivers for these state level initiatives, ties to planning efforts, implementation opportunities and challenges, and community level actions that have resulted.  Register for the webinar here.
