Deadline for Registration: May 18, 2023

Join us for our third District Dialogues event of the 2022–2023 season, which will explore how communities and industries across the Fifth District are preparing to navigate the impact of extreme weather on local economies. 

At the Richmond Fed, it’s important that we understand the economic issues affecting the communities we serve. Join us for a conversation on the economic implications of extreme weather events and how communities across our region are investing to increase their economic resiliency—or ability to bounce back economically—after a hurricane, heat wave or other major weather event hits close to home.

During the session, you will hear from leading experts from the Richmond Fed as well as industry and community organizations on:

  • The Federal Reserve’s responsibility to understand financial risks 
  • The economic impact of extreme weather on rural versus urban communities—as well as the overall economy
  • How communities in the Fifth District are to preparing to “weather” the economic challenges presented by extreme weather events

Building Resilient Communities: Preparing for Extreme Weather Challenges is the final session of the 2022–2023 District Dialogues series. The series is intended to bring experts and community members together to discuss today’s most pressing economic topics. As we wrap up the 2022-2023 season, stay tuned for information on the dates and topics for the 2023-2024 season. If there are any topics you would like to see discussed at an upcoming District Dialogues, let us know.
