Workshop: ALERT & WARNING PEER PLANNING WORKSHOP
About Peer Planning Workshops:
The Houston UASI Planners Workgroup develops and hosts peer planning workshops to give stakeholders in the region an opportunity to learn about planning for a variety topics from the perspectives of different local subject matter experts who represent agencies and organizations from different communities. It is interactive, so participants have opportunities to ask questions and share their own experiences. These workshops focus on planning and are not meant to be a training on the chosen topic.
