This month's ILMS webinar will cover flooding in Indiana and how to use new tools available from the Indiana University Environmental Resilience Institute (ERI). The Environmental Resilience Institute has two new tools – the Hoosier Resilience Index and FutureWater– to help Indiana’s local governments understand how their communities will be impacted by more frequent heavy precipitation events and floods and help them become more resilient. Attendees will learn how to use these tools, understand why and how they should prepare for more frequent heavy precipitation events and floods, learn how to use these tools to improve risk communication strategies, and provide data for informing best practices. 

Our speaker this month will be Janet McCabe from IU. Janet McCabe is Professor of Practice at the IU McKinney School of Law and the Director of the IU Environmental Resilience Institute. From 2009 to 2017, Janet worked in the USEPA’s Office of Air and Radiation, including as Acting Assistant Administrator during President Obama’s second term. Prior to joining EPA, Janet was Executive Director of Improving Kids’ Environment, Inc., a children’s environmental health advocacy organization based in Indianapolis. From 1993 to 2005, Janet held several leadership positions in IDEM’s Office of Air Quality and was the office’s Assistant Commissioner from 1998 to 2005. Before coming to Indiana in 1993, Janet served as Assistant Attorney General for environmental protection for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Assistant Secretary for Environmental Impact Review.  Janet graduated from Harvard College in 1980 and Harvard Law School in 1983. 

This is the last of the 2020 ILMS webinar series. Attendance has been free for ILMS members, and $10 for non-members. Membership benefits include special events, access to the members only web page, including recordings of our webinar series, and a discounted annual conference registration. ILMS is now preparing for the 2021 Indiana Lakes Conference, and hope you can join us. We look forward to holding another webinar series beginning in Summer 2021!
