Community Resilience Workshops

Swirl Chart

NIST has convened a series of workshops engaging a broad network of stakeholders to help develop the Community Resilience Planning Guide for Buildings and Infrastructure Systems (Guide), with a focus on the role that buildings and infrastructure play in ensuring community resilience.

These workshops were held to support the continuing development of the Guide. The first workshop was held on April 7, 2014 at the NIST Gaithersburg, MD campus. Following workshops were held at locations throughout the country to engage a broad range of stakeholders and their experiences.

After receiving feedback from stakeholders NIST released Volume I and II of the Guide.

Workshop materials from each conference held to support the creation of the Guide, including the agenda, presentations, breakout sessions, and a workshop summary, are available below.
