Natural disasters, political dramas, personnel issues, and capital projects gone awry are just some possibilities that could plunge a district into emergency mode. We’ll provide the tools to navigate these crises with composure, in both short and long terms.

Recent case law and Attorney General Opinions will be used to reveal hidden dangers and illustrate best practices for risk prevention.
