Cost-Saving Strategies to Improve County Economic and Energy Resilience: A Resilient Counties Forum

The Resilient Counties Forum was an opportunity for county leaders to gain a better understanding of how they can help meet county disaster management, energy cultivation and protection, resource recycling and infrastructure financing goals. The day was split into two with presentations in the morning, and a “conversation café,” or round table discussion, in the afternoon.
