11th Annual Building Resilience Through 
Private-Public Partnerships Conference

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation will convene in-person on July 28-29, 2022, in Washington, D.C. for its annual Building Resilience Through Private Public Partnerships Conference, now entering its 11th year.

This year’s conference will explore the need for readiness strategies to improve resilience – bringing together key players from government, nonprofits, and the private sector to drive effective resilience programming through greater collaboration across sectors.

As we enter the third year of living with COVID-19, new and persistent challenges remain. The crisis in Ukraine has sparked an ongoing humanitarian response and associated threats to social, physical, and cyber infrastructure have underscored the need for vigilance across sectors. The frequency and severity of disasters of all kinds continue to escalate, requiring additional capacity for solutions including greater sustainability of the built environment. Meanwhile, ensuring that equity is integrated throughout all aspects of the disaster lifecycle remains critical to building more effective coordination and communication, and strengthening our communities. 

Our 11th Annual Building Resilience Conference will feature two days of thought-provoking sessions and insightful conversations. After two years of virtual programming, we look forward to hosting a vibrant, in-person event with action-oriented roundtables, engaging breakout sessions, and substantive discussions from the main stage. The event will also feature various networking opportunities, including a Resilience Network Reception. 

As in previous years, leaders engaged before, during, and after disasters will share perspectives to help inspire the shared commitment to resilience domestically and globally. Our way of life depends on the reliability of systems and institutions to perform under duress, disruptions, and disasters. Unfortunately, this dependency and system interdependency is often forgotten until a crisis is underway or on the eve of a disaster.

Now is the opportunity to strengthen partnerships before the next crisis occurs.

Register now to join us on July 28-29, 2022, for our 11th Annual Building Resilience Through Private-Public Partnerships Conference.
