Is your organization prepared for a disaster, large or small? This conference will delineate the fundamentals of disaster planning, provide ideas for training staff, review lessons learned from past events, and examine local, state, and national recovery resources. Learn from some of our state’s most experienced collections experts about preparing for and surviving disasters—crucial information, should the unthinkable happen.
