Conference Program

Facility Performance and Sustainability Symposium:
Realizing Resilience: Incentives for Owners and Operators

Earn 5.75 Learning Units / Health, Safety, Welfare 

Wednesday, January 13, 2016, 9:45 am – 5:30 pm

(Following the Opening Keynote Address at 8:30 am)

 

Buildings, both residential and commercial, establish a key foundation to the realization of community-wide performance goals. To drive achievement of resilience goals, incentives provide important signals to decision makers within the owner and operator community on the desired actions they should undertake. Such incentives can come from multiple parties, ranging from finance and insurance institutions to federal, state and local governments. This one-day symposium will focus on improving resilience within the building stock through the use of incentives. The day’s discussion will continue on Thursday, January 14, 2016, at the Security and Disaster Preparedness Symposium, with a focus on Incentives for Local Leaders and Lifelines.
