ATLANTA - National disaster recovery and reconstruction experts headline the first National Disaster Reconstruction Expo’s (NDRExpo) conference program. The NDRExpo was developed to unite the numerous vertical markets associated with disaster preparation, response, recovery, and rebuilding. NDRExpo launches June 17-18, 2009 at the Morial New Orleans Convention Center.

“Our conference agenda reflects the level of knowledge and expertise that we are dedicated to providing our participants,” said Jimmy Mouton, president of Imago Trade Shows, the producer of the NDRExpo. “NDRExpo is the only trade show offering such valuable information to the professionals of this industry.”

FEMA’s assistant administrator of mitigation is scheduled to provide the NDRExpo’s keynote address. As part of the agency’s National Mitigation Directorate, the administrator manages the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and programs designed to reduce future natural disaster-related losses. The keynote address will focus on how, through the National Mitigation Directorate, FEMA seeks to break the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage.

AidMatrix Foundation’s President and CEO, and former Wisconsin Governor, Scott McCallum is scheduled to lead Wednesday’s General Session. AidMatrix Foundation is a nonprofit that uses advanced information technology to create efficiencies between donors and those in need, managing $1.5 billion annually with operations in six continents to 35,000 nonprofits. Recently employing systems for the fires in California, the AidMatrix Disaster Relief Network covers 75 percent of the U.S. population though FEMA, in addition to its global reach.

General Session speakers scheduled for Thursday include the Restoration Industry Association’s (RIA) Executive Director, Don Manger, and Development Adviser & Facilitator, G. Pete Consigli, CR, WLS.

Having ushered the Restoration Industry Association through recent transformations, Manger and Consigli will share their experiences and RIA’s role within the industry.
