It is not a question of IF there will be another…but WHEN the next disaster will happen. Join the Greater Southeast Management District (Houston Southeast) and the SBA Houston District Office to learn about how to prepare for a disaster.

During this fireside chat, hear from representatives from SCORE Houston and the SBA Office of Disaster Assistance (who will discuss disaster preparation and low-interest federal disaster loans available to businesses) and a local insurance agent (who will provide an industry perspective to prepare for a disaster).
