Hazus Users Conference 2013

5-7 August 2013.

Dave, Kevin, Christina and Brendan were breathing sighs of relief on Monday morning as the delegates to the 2013 Hazus Users Conference started showing up at the reception desk. With Eric Berman, they greeted friends and colleagues congregating at the government centre in Indianapolis to share their stories about doing Hazus and ways to make it better. Eventually over a hundred people showed up, mostly from the eastern US. The rest came from further afield in the US, Canada, and Singapore.  The meeting was different than 3 years ago in Indianapolis.
