Communities are often surprised when a power plant or mine announces it will close. Starting to plan as early as possible for the impacts of such a closure is critical to achieving more successful outcomes. This webinar will provide guidance on getting started, including a discussion with community leaders who have been there and can offer their perspective on what works.

This virtual event will provide information and best practices for addressing fundamental industrial change in a community. The program will offer a step-by-step guide to engaging on the topic in a community, a checklist of necessary activities, discussion of common experiences, case studies, resources, and a task list for developing a plan that addresses financial, employment, and social disruptions.
