Fall, 2015
Congratulations!!! A Message from the Resilient Virginia Chairman

Resilient Virginia is celebrating its one year anniversary. Over a year ago the idea of a program in Virginia that would address community resiliency was being discussed by former members of the Virginia Sustainable Building Network. This humble beginning grew, and became a clarion call to INFORM, EDUCATE, AND ACTIVATE the Commonwealth in matters of Resiliency. Resilient Virginia was founded.

During the past year we have organized a Board of Directors, established action committees, had a very successful Kick-Off Meeting in February, and are in the process of putting together a Resiliency Conference in the first quarter of 2016. In doing so there have been meetings at state governmental levels and many state departments, multiple visits to potential sponsors and supporters, and more phone calls than Ma Bell could have ever envisioned. But here we are — ready to serve Virginia as the educational source for all matters of resiliency.

We are known throughout the Commonwealth as a can-do, get-it-done organization that can meet the educational resiliency needs of Virginia. So, for those participating in the many meetings, phone calls, e-mails, and support — pat yourself on the back, we are one year old and growing!

Sincerely,
Jerry Walker, CEM, LEED AP
Chairman, Resilient Virginia
