On June 21, 2019, ALCTS is sponsoring an exciting program before the ALA Annual called “Better Networking for Disasters.”

Longtime COSTEP MA contributor from FEMA Lori Foley will be speaking. If you plan on attending ALA, be sure to register for this great event:

Using last year’s hurricane season in Puerto Rico as a case study, this session will bring together individuals and organizations involved in disaster response and recovery of cultural heritage. It aims to explore ways to improve coordination and increase engagement of ALA members, in disaster response and recovery. This mix of formal presentations, moderated panels and a breakout session for the audience is designed to inspire collaborations that extend beyond the current modes of working.
