Southeast & Caribbean Climate Community of Practice (CCoP) 2017 In-person Meeting

This meeting will convene CCoP members on April 24-26, 2017 in Charleston, SC. This year’s agenda includes discussion about Hurricane Matthew, including regional storm impacts, lessons learned in rapid response and recovery planning, and disaster communications. 

Mr. Jason Hurdich (RID Certified Deaf Interpreter, SC Vocational Rehabilitation Department) and Shonna Magee (the Statewide Coordinator of Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Services with the SC Vocational Rehabilitation Department) will be the keynote speakers on Wednesday afternoon. They became household names last year for their interpretation of South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley’s press briefings during Hurricane Matthew and will bring an exciting and unique perspective on disaster communication.

The Carolinas Integrated Sciences and Assessments, one of the CPO Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments teams, provides leadership in planning and coordinating the meeting.
