Join the Queens Forum on Wednesday July 17th for the “Preparing for Disaster: The New Normal” Conference at LaGuardia Community College.

The “Preparing for Disaster: The New Normal” conference will convene local professionals, community and faith-based leaders, elected officials, representatives of government agencies, activists, advocates, educators, and case workers to learn about best practices, tools, and resources to address issues relating to emergency preparedness and resiliency in Queens and around New York City at large.

Our keynote speaker, Josh Lockwood, CEO of the Greater New York Region, American Red Cross, esteemed panelists and interactive workshops will address issues such as how to work with vulnerable populations during disaster, cultural competency, business continuity and volunteerism. Our goal is to empower local community leaders to more effectively respond to the issues while providing a space for networking and relationship building.

The Conference will take place in the Little Theatre at LaGuardia Performing Arts Center at LaGuardia Community College located at 31-10 Thomson Avenue, Long Island City, NY 11101 from 8:30 AM – 3 PM. The registration fee is $25 which includes breakfast and lunch; scholarships are available.
