This program continues the dialog between members of the engineering, infrastructure, architecture, emergency management, medical, construction, first responder, and community planning fields through a series of presentations and panel sessions covering public-private partnerships for enhancing infrastructure resilience, challenges and opportunities in regional emergency management, and maritime resource protection and security issues prevalent to the Great Lakes region.
