Annual Dinner with the 'Master of Disaster'
The Master Builders Association of the ACT is pleased to announce that Urban Policy and disaster recovery expert Professor Ed Blakely will be joining us for this year’s Annual Dinner on Wednesday 17 October at the Hotel Realm in Barton.
Professor Blakely is professor of Urban Policy at Sydney University and is recognised as a world leader in his field with international experience in urban and regional planning, sustainable development and disaster management.
Having spent the past four decades leading disaster recovery teams in the United States and around the world, he has earned the nickname ‘Master of Disaster’.
From 2007 – 2009 Professor Blakely was the Executive Director for Recovery Management in New Orleans where he directed the Hurricane Katrina recovery efforts. He was also involved in the reconstruction of San Francisco after the 1989 earthquakes, worked with the City of New York following the 9/11 terrorist attacks and has led multiple recovery efforts in California following the earthquakes, fires and riots.
Be sure to join us at the 2012 Master Builders Annual Dinner where Professor Blakely will share his experience on post-disaster recovery and discuss a new economy for Australia.
