How many times have we used words like “pivot” or “resilience” in the past two years?

Words and actions like these continue to be top of mind for most municipal leaders as they continue to navigate the ever-changing landscape of regulatory, funding, political and environmental requirements. Adapting to what is happening in the moment will continue to be crucial skill required of leaders to successfully weather unforeseen changes.

WithersRavenel invites you to join us for our Confluence 2022 stormwater virtual webinars, which focus on strategies for building adaptability into your long-term plans.
