Watch our "Smart Systems, Resilient Regions" roundtable live at noon!

Chicagoland is accustomed to snow and cold, but this winter's Polar Vortex was particularly brutal.

Join us at noon (central) today for a live video stream of our roundtable on preparing effectively for future challenges.

If this winter has taught us anything, it's the value of being prepared—not just for the expected, like snow, but also for unforeseen climate conditions like the polar vortex. The increasing frequency of extreme weather events is creating a complex knot of pressures for governments, businesses and communities.

Northeastern Illinois’ resiliency—our ability to provide critical public services such as transportation, communications, water and flood management—is being tested. This MPC Roundtable will highlight leading governance and technology practices that can help our region and others achieve greater infrastructure resilience and ensure that our businesses stay up and running during critical moments.

Watch now! The video is streamed on YouTube and will also be recorded and available to watch after the event.
