VCCF Lead Sponsor of Inaugural California Wildfire Conference
The Ventura County Community Foundation is delighted announce that we are the lead sponsors for the Inaugural California Wildfire Conference.
Coastal Quest, in partnership with Ventura County Wildfire Collaborative, is proud to present the first California Wildfire Conference. This three-day exchange will bring together a diverse community of wildfire practitioners to focus on understanding, preventing, and recovering from wildfires. The conference will be held from October 24-26, 2023, in Ventura County at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.
VCCF is also hosting the Evening Reception on October 24 in the Air Force One Pavilion, where we in partnership with the Pacific Coast Business Times will be launching Emergency Preparedness, a resiliency guide which will provide a blueprint for future disaster response, at the opening reception.
Participants are drawn from California, Western US States, and globally where wildfire and communities interface. Attendees include local and national government agencies/leaders, natural resource managers/landowners, California Tribes, community leaders/organizations, and multi-sectoral collaboratives/councils.
We invite Firewise/Firesafe Councils and Collaboratives who are developing wildfire adaptation and mitigation plans and implementing solutions. This event will be open to 200 in-person attendees, and select sessions will be recorded and shared after the conference.
With over 60 SPEAKERS lined up for the inaugural California Wildfire Conference, Field Tours, an Exhibit Hall and multiple Networking opportunities, this conference shouldn’t be missed.
