9th Annual Building Resilience Through Private-Public Partnerships Conference

Tuesday, July 14, 2020 to Thursday, July 16, 2020

Save the Date! The 9th Annual Building Resilience Through Private-Public Partnerships Conference will take place virtually, from July 14-16, 2020.

As communities around the world recover from the effects of COVID-19, society grapples with what a new normal might look like. This global pandemic has disrupted nearly every aspect of our daily life—the way we do business, how we worship, receive an education. These disruptions uncover our vulnerabilities and shine a light on the need for total resilience—protecting individuals, preparing communities, and fortifying social systems. Now in its ninth year, the Building Resilience Through Private-Public Partnerships Conference focuses on the collaboration required among private, public, and nonprofit sectors to help mitigate the effects of all disasters.

This year’s conference, hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation with support from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and U.S. NORTHERN COMMAND, will focus on building resilience in the midst of a global pandemic while looking ahead to future emergencies and how we can be better prepared through greater collaboration across sectors. 

Additionally, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, FEMA, DHS, U.S. NORTHERN COMMAND, and National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster have joined together to name the week of July 12 as National Partnership Week for Disaster Management. The PPP Conference will take place virtually on July 14 - 16 and FEMA and NVOAD will host a Partnership Day virtually on July 17.
