We have witnessed the devastating effects of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, with Jose and Maria quickly following in their wake. We've seen wildfires rage through the west and Pacific Northwest, and an earthquake rock southern Mexico, followed by a 7.1 magnitude quake in Mexico City. 

The loss of life is tragic and destruction extensive. Still, there are many instances where the damage was mitigated by advanced planning and proactive preparation. The Washington DC Chapter thanks all the industry-wide professionals for their work in helping their businesses and communities survive and begin recovery.

The DRI Foundation is committed to supporting the resilience efforts of these communities to help them build back better. Every penny donated to the Foundation’s Hurricane Recovery Fund goes directly to recovery and resilience efforts. By combining donations, the resilience professionals can make a meaningful and sustainable impact on these communities. Click here to donate.


The Washington DC Chapter of the Association of Contingency Planners (ACP) would like to congratulate Ryan Huber and Ian Hamilton as this year's recipients for the DC Chapter's $500 Scholarship. The recipients were awarded at our October 24, 2017 Chapter Meeting.
