Emergency preparedness creates a framework for property managers to reduce vulnerabilities, threats, and hazards to cope with disasters facing a multitude of tenants. In light of recent well-known emergencies nationally, including ones in our region, building managers feel a new sense of vulnerability and heightened obligation regarding risk management.

Regional collaboration increases emergency management capabilities by establishing partnerships and improving communication across jurisdictional boundaries, enabling interconnectivity of all emergency functions. This means thinking both creatively and collaboratively about opportunities for shared resources, joint training, and information sharing with a common vision of proactively improving the ability to see the “big picture” for recurring threats throughout the region.

To register, please use the "Registration options" button at the top right of this page. The cost for the event is $35 for AOBA members and $70 for non-members. Registration and coffee from 10:00 to 10:30; program will run from 10:30 to 12:00. Location is the CoStar Building Auditorium, 1331 L Street, NW, Washington, DC.
