Empowering Community Resilience

“Resilience is all about being able to overcome the unexpected.
Sustainability is about survival.
The goal of resilience is to thrive.”
Jamais Cascio, author and futurist

The Building Resilience series

As communities have struggled to find a path through and beyond the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to us at General Code to do our part to help. Working with municipalities and counties for nearly 60 years has given us a unique understanding of the complexities of local government. In an effort to put this distinct perspective to good purpose, we’ve introduced a series of webinars and blogs focusing on building resilience.

An eye on recovery

A strong recovery is possible with innovative thought, good planning, and purposeful action. Embracing opportunities to collaborate and think forward is important. Pursuing solutions and strategies that can support your community’s vision for the future is a crucial piece of emerging stronger and comprehensively more sound. Whether it involves teaming up with neighboring municipalities or exploring forward-thinking solutions, we can all build vibrant, resilient communities together.
