NRMCA Delivers Solutions at Florida Hurricane Conference

Last week, NRMCA Vice President of Sustainability Tien Peng delivered two workshops at the 29th Annual Governor’s Hurricane Conference. Approximately 80 emergency management, public works, building code and insurance professionals attended "Pathways to Resilience "and "Life Cycle Assessments, A Primer for Public Works" workshops at the Rosen Shingle Creek Conference Center in Orlando. The Governor’s Hurricane Conference is the largest forum in the nation that offers training to expand the capacity to effectively respond to a hurricane. Specifically structured to present information in a dynamic interactive atmosphere, the NRMCA workshop provided extensive opportunities for Florida state officials and those across the country to understand the role of concrete in community disaster resilience and its environmental impacts.

Tien Peng was invited to the conference by Betti Johnson, a planner with Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council. NRMCA encourages its members to participate in local professional groups, such as emergency management local chapters, and offer topics and speakers for education programs.
