St Thomas 5DRI International is proud to announce the next in its series of one-day regional conferences, which will be held at the Cameron School of Business at the University of St. Thomas in Houston, TX, April 23 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.!

These conferences are designed for professionals who may not have the time or money to attend DRI’s larger conference events, but still want an opportunity for networking and education when it’s conveniently close to their location. It’s also open to the next generation interested in learning what the field has to offer.

“The University of St. Thomas Cameron School of Business is thrilled to host a DRI Collegiate Conference,” said Anthony Pizzitola, MBCP, session presenter and St. Thomas alumnus. “The students and faculty are looking forward to learning more about how to apply resilience measures for disasters their future organizations may face. Equally, the ability to network with international speakers and professionals is at the top of their list!”

Attendees will enjoy a networking breakfast, luncheon, and end-of-day round­table discussion with the speakers. The cost of attendance, including meals and materials, is a $50 donation to the DRI Foundation. DRI Certified Professionals will earn CEAPs for attending the event – space is limited, so early registration is encouraged.

Among the speakers:

  • Al Berman, DRI International
  • Brian Coates, Enaxis Consulting
  • Cameron Self, StormGeo
  • Mike Mastrangelo, UTMB Health, and
