On October 8, we're bringing together leading experts from the fields of weather sciences, risk analysis, insurance, community planning, government, urban engineering and disaster prevention for a one-day forum looking at the Northeast region in light of events like Sandy and other severe weather systems.

U.S. Senator Christopher Murphy, will be a Special Guest Speaker, sharing his perspective as a member of Congress' Bicameral Task Force on Climate Change where he has consistently pushed for strong and proactive environmental policies that combat climate change, curb pollution, invest in renewable energy, and promote sustainable development solutions.

The forum will open with a keynote address from Alice C. Hill, Senior Advisor for Preparedness and Resilience to the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, National Security Council Staff, White House. In this role, she serves as the principal advisor on preparedness and resilience issues arising from climate change.

Collin O'Mara, President and CEO, National Wildlife Federation (NWF) will provide a keynote luncheon address. Before joining the NWF in July 2014, Collin served as the Secretary for the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control.
