Who Should Attend? Interested members of a state cultural heritage emergency network, including but not limited to:

  • Representatives of state cultural agencies – State Library, State Museum, State Archives, State Arts Council, State Humanities Council, State Historic Preservation Office – who have an obligation (whether legal or moral) to assist their constituents following a disaster
  • Representatives of local, county, state, and federal emergency management (EM) agencies
  • Representatives of national, regional, or state museum, library, or archives associations
  • Colleagues at other state agencies who would benefit from the webinars. Please pass this email along to them!

Although the information is relevant to all cultural institutions, we’d like to keep participation in the live webinar down to a manageable number so the instructor can field questions that apply primarily to state cultural and EM agencies. Our aim is to provide information that’s most useful to network members, who will then be better equipped to help their constituents. The webinar will be recorded.

Webinars are free of charge; registration is required. Follow the links on webinar titles above to register.
