In terms of my industry community, it is maintaining relationships, being part of professional organizations, attending conferences, and staying on top of new policy. It is also incredibly important for me to be involved in the community in which I live, South Florida. I stay up to date on the work of the Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact. Even though I don’t currently work with any of the agencies focused on resilience in my own community I am incredibly interested in the ways I can relate the type of work I do to how I live. In addition, I am a member of the Community Leadership Board for the South Florida Chapter of the American Diabetes Association and beginning work with an advisory committee to develop an Emergency Management Certificate program with a local College.
