April is Disaster Preparedness Month—but are you prepared for a disaster in your historic house, museum, or society building? Come to this workshop to learn how to prepare for disasters that affect historical organizations, such as a fire in the attic or a flood from a burst pipe. The speaker will share preparation techniques you might never have thought of—one of which could save your building, exhibits, and collections in the future! Presented by Eve Weipert, Independent Museum Consultant.
For in-person attendees, refreshments will be available. Lunch is on your own. Materials are included with your registration. Any handouts from the presenter will be sent to remote attendees after the workshop.
