National Symposium on Risk & Disasters

The University of Pennsylvania, in conjunction with Congressional Quarterly and The Communications Institute, will sponsor the National Symposium on Risk & Disasters on Thursday, December 1 in Washington D.C. at the Cannon House Office Building. This symposium—Lessons from Hurricane Katrina for American Life Rebuilding the Gulf: Case Study for the Future, will begin at 8:15 a.m. and conclude at 4 p.m. It will bring together scholars from around the nation to discuss issues of economic risk and social responsibility raised by Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath.

The symposium will objectively examine the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina on nearly every sector of society and involve leading experts from many of the nation’s leading academic and research institutions as well as leaders from government and business and senior journalists. 

Members of the University community who are available to do so are encouraged to attend this important conference on topics such as the role of the government, non-profit organizations, and business in mitigating risk and the best way to plan for future disasters.

To register for this free event, visit www.tci1.org/. Registration is limited; deadline: November 23, 2005. To find out more about conference logistics, please contact Ray Simon at (215) 898-1213.

The University is also planning a spring semester, on-campus conference to focus more specifically on rebuilding efforts.
