2020 RASCL Summit

Bringing Experts and Communities Together

Save the Dates!

December 9-10, 2020

Each year, RASCL hosts an annual Summit that attracts over 200 attendees from nonprofits, local governments, state agencies, private consultants, and community groups. This year, the 4th annual RASCL Summit is going virtual!

This year's theme is "Expect the Unexpected: Planning with Uncertainty". The Summit will highlight best practices, tools, resources, and lessons learned from COVID-19 and Tropical Storm Isaias that inform future planning, responding, and recovering from unexpected events. We hope you will join us to hear about best practices, tools, and resources that can benefit Delaware communities.

This event will take place over Zoom. Registration is required and zoom login information will be sent out the week of the Summit.

Professional development credits will be offered for attending CFM, PE and AICP.
