The ResilientAmerica Roundtable will host a two-day event on the State of Resilience to convene leaders, experts, and diverse community stakeholders who are shaping the resilience narrative through their efforts to discuss the current state of resilience, ways to incentivize resilience, and the impacts of their resilience building initiatives.
The Roundtable and its programs aim to help communities and the nation
build resilience to extreme events, save lives, and reduce the physical and economic costs of disasters.
