Disaster Preparedness • Economic Recovery • Resilience


The free IEDC Disaster Preparedness and Economic Recovery webinar series is a yearly series that provides practical information on key topics for economic development organizations and chambers of commerce. Each seminar hosts economic recovery practitioners with real world experience and leadership in the subject matter. Each seminar will feature efforts made in disaster-impacted communities. Attend these interactive sessions to learn how your organization can be better equipped to handle a major disruption – whether caused by natural or manmade events.

Each webinar consists of two parts – a full hour of instruction by speakers followed by a 30 minute Q&A period. The webinars are available at no-cost, thanks to grants from the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA). To download any of the previously recorded webinars, please visit our webinar archives page.
