Disaster Preparedness and Resilience for Collecting Organizations

Wednesday, December 2, 2020
9 am – 12:30 pm PST


Join Oregon Heritage and Oregon Museums Association for a free workshop to explore action you can take to plan for a disaster in order to limit damage and recover quickly.

The first half, presented by Oregon State Archives, will focus on disaster preparedness for essential records and archival collections.

The second half, presented by UO’s Institute for Policy Research & Engagement , will share a new model of community-wide disaster resilience planning for heritage resources. Learn how to team up with other heritage organizations in your community to develop a plan and move forward mitigation efforts. This session will explain what a community plan includes, explore the guidebook to developing the plan, and the value to collecting organizations to participate in a community plan.

This workshop is free to attend! Please consider giving a $5 donation to OMA.
