Panelists Kevin Bush, Chief Resilience Officer for Washington, DC; Keith Anderson, Director of the DC Department of General Services; and Rick Schneider, AIA-LEED, Principal of ISTUDIO Architects will speak on their areas of expertise before engaging in a dynamic conversation to examine the issues, challenges, and possibilities of a Resilient City – moderated by Susan Piedmont-Palladino, Director of the WAAC of the CAUS-VT.
