Making Economic Resiliency and Recovery The New Norm

Dale Wheeldon

Description: 

All over the world, communities and their economic development efforts are navigating uncharted waters.  The COVID-19 pandemic has opened many questions about a post-COVID economy.  While COVID-19 has been a devasting disaster affecting the world there are other disasters that can happen at any time and hit at a more local level.  It does not matter if it is a flood, a fire, the closure of your major employer or something else that unexpectantly negatively impacts your economy.  These disasters seem to be happening more frequently and your community needs to be prepared to ensure you have a resilient community if one happens.  This session explores what you need to do to be ready for an economic disaster and to address current challenges impacting our economy.
