In this first Policy Pub of the new year, Assistant Professor of Public Administration David Berlan discusses how the broader community generously donated time, money and other resources to help rebuild after Hurricane Michael devastated the Florida Panhandle in October 2018.
Berlan's brief presentation will cover the surprisingly extensive web of generosity, as well as lessons for continued rebuilding efforts and future disaster responses.
After the talk, he will facilitate a public conversation about the importance of the community in recovering from disasters and assisting one another.
Policy Pubs take place in the relaxed, informal atmosphere in the bar area of one of the city's most popular restaurants.
Pub attendees listen to brief, plain-language talks about such topics as politics, economics, the environment, and more. Then they ask questions and engage in friendly dialogue. It’s fun, social, interactive, and highly informative.
Because these events are very well attended, the public is encouraged to arrive early to get a convenient parking spot and a good table inside.
