National Earthquake Conference

We are presenting at the National Earthquake Conference!

Come see what we've accomplished to date, the strategies and approach we're developing, and a roadmap for retrofitting many historic brick bearing wall buildings in the mid-South over the next 25 years.

Our event is free and open to the public:
A cross-disciplinary series of presentations and a panel Q & A in the Venetian Room of the Peabody Hotel in Memphis on April 10 from 7 to 9:30pm, with a hosted reception at 6:30. This event is part of the Eathquake Engineering Research Institute and National Earthquake Conference which is coming to Memphis on the occasion of 200th anniversary of the great New Madrid Earthquakes.
