ResCon, premier annual international conference on the practice of successful resilience and disaster management in an evolving global environment, has announced that this year’s conference will be held virtually on September 8-10, 2020.

The theme of this year’s virtual conference will be “Reconnection…Resilience…ResCon.” The event will highlight the strength and resilience shown in communities large and small across these unprecedented months by fostering learning and conversation inspired by hard-won successes and lessons learned.

“Whether a natural disaster, a cyberattack or a global pandemic, the past few months have provided a sobering reminder of the importance of preparedness for a range of threats, and governors across the country have risen to the occasion of keeping their residents safe in the face of multiple challenges,” said Jeff McLeod, Director, NGA’s Homeland Security and Public Safety Division.

“We’re pleased to support ResCon, the nation’s premier forum for disaster preparedness and resiliency, and look forward to sharing the many lessons we’ve learned this year in confronting one of the most serious crises in decades,” McLeod continued.

Program and registration information will be announced in the coming weeks on the event website at
