Resilient Cities (8:30-10:00amMT)
This session brings together leading practitioners from some of the world’s first 100RC cities representing three different regions of the United States, each facing unique hazards and their own physical, social, and economic challenges, but all sharing the common goal of becoming a safer and truly resilient city.

Structural Vulnerability – Warding off the 3 UGLIES – Earthquake, Flood, and Fire (10:15-1145MT)
With the advent of ASCE-24-5 Flood Resistant Design and Construction, 2015 International Building Code* (IBC) and the 2015 International Residential Code* (IRC) and the management of structural end-user protection expectations, public officials and mitigation practitioners are being asked more frequently for technical guidance on resilience on this triad. This session will focus on addressing its relationship to structural vulnerability for earthquakes, flood, and wildfire/urban interface issues.

Earthquake Risk Mitigation: A Bridge Between Policy and Engineering (10:15-1145MT)
This session will include an interactive discussion on how policy and engineering can develop together to bring progress on seismic resilience of both individuals and society. The panelists will present a new vision for strategic collaboration between the technical and policy worlds to better assist individuals, organizations, and communities in understanding and managing their natural disaster risks.

Understanding and Responding to the New Normal (1:00-2:30pmMT)
This session will be led by a diverse panel of experts to provide a discourse on the new normal, including topics that address drought and other weather-based dynamics, how a local government balances existing stressors with emerging threats, the knowledge gained from a global adaption index that helps development leaders manage risks, and a perspective of federal priorities to assist decision makers working toward a better baseline for action.

Crafting and Designing Programs by Practitioners for a Safer Future (1:00-2:30pmMT)
This session will discuss how we as a Nation, despite population growth, climate change, and foreseeable natural events, can build safely and properly so as to not exacerbate existing problems caused by improper construction and development. Developing a resilient society requires a new sales message that promotes a win-win “Whole Community” approach to development practices based on sound economic, legal, and ethical principles, protection of the environment, and involvement of all stakeholder groups. Panelists will share their thoughts on how to make this future a reality.

The Fire-Flood Connection: Linking Hazards and Mitigation (3:00-4:30pmMT)
One disaster frequently follows the other, leaving behind more devastating impacts to communities still in response and recovery mode. This session will bring practitioner perspectives from the western U.S. to share insights, best practices, and creative funding solutions to encourage other communities in addressing the fire-flood connection and reducing future damage.

Severe Thunderstorm Impacts and Mitigation (3:00-4:30pmMT)
This session will discuss lessons learned from recent severe storm events such as the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma and changes that have been made to building codes and construction practices that can minimize the impacts, along with the economics of mitigating against these unique hazards.
