You will also hear from Jennifer Wetmore (Community Futures Boundary), Roly Russell (Chair of the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary), Deb Arnott (Community Futures Sun Country) and Karen Eden (Community Futures Cariboo), who have all experienced natural disasters in their community and can share their experiences and learning.
