After the Fire USA 2022 Wildfire Leadership Summit Recap


The After the Fire USA 2022 Wildfire Leadership Summit was our most ambitious convening ever. We did a smaller version with Camp + Woolsey + North Bay Complex Fires in March of 2019 that was impactful for all. We scheduled another for May 2020…but then COVID-19 got in the way.

In 2022, we were finally able to do it.

This year, we invited 126 orgs and 168 people to convene for three days and we began where we always must begin: with the fire affected communities. May we know each other, listen together, share best practices, and spread hope.

We were honored to have virtually every wildfire community since 2015 (Valley Fire, Lake County) across California, Colorado and Oregon represented.
