Webinar Recording: Long-Term Recovery: Addressing Business Failures in Years 2-5

On April 22nd, 2014, IEDC presented this webinar on “Long-Term Recovery: Addressing Business Failures in Years 2-5.” The street lights are back on, the debris has all been removed, and your community is on the road to recovery. Yet businesses continue to struggle and a lasting recovery seems just out of reach. How can you, the economic developer in your community, help businesses survive beyond the initial disaster response and thrive for years to come? What are the challenges facing businesses impacted by disaster that might not manifest until years later? What can your community do today, tomorrow, and in the future to prevent business failures in the long-term following a disaster? This webinar discusses these issues and provide practical advice on how to prepare for what happens in the long-term after your community has moved on from a disaster.
