The Foundation for Advancement in Conservation (FAIC), the Chicago History Museum, and a local planning committee formally invite you to attend the Alliance for Response Kick-off Forum (AFR) at the Chicago History Museum on June 29, 2022.

The goal of AFR is to help communities more effectively protect their cultural and historic resources in the event of floods, hurricanes, fires, and other disasters by bringing cultural heritage and emergency management professionals together to network and learn from each other. Participants will include professionals from museums, libraries, archives, and historic sites, as well as neighborhood first responders, key state and local emergency managers, and civic leaders.

Please register by June 15 (5:00 p.m. CST).<https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://learning.culturalheritage.org/products/chicago-alliance-for-response-kick-off-forum*tab-product_tab_overview__;Iw!!DZ3fjg!9aSxzk1qrz-4OXBK7GMzdP259tGDhOwB9a1jl6dI1bnhJ5Ku8Mn2lKEV6MtKBXYeFcscnPhtpk9kc8GF_Z9nf9JMciI$ >  (Non-AIC members may register, but will need to create a login on the FAIC website.)
