A Coastal Resilience Center of Excellence education project led by the University of Maryland’s (UMD) Sandra Knight recently hosted a project management training in which emergency managers assessed their job functions and looked for ways to improve how they manage recovery processes.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency Insurance and Mitigation Readiness Division worked with UMD's Center for Disaster Resilience to lead a workshop, “A Project Management Framework for HM Disaster Functions,” on May 15, 2018, in Emmitsburg, Maryland.
