The Bill Anderson Fund 10th Anniversary Celebration: Stories of the Past, Present, and Future

Sunday, July 14, 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. MDT
Location: Interlocken B/C

Please join us in celebrating the Bill Anderson Fund (BAF) and a decade of cultivating leaders in disaster research and practice from underrepresented groups. The Fund’s dedicated support has empowered members of the BAF community to make meaningful contributions to scholarly discourse, policy, and practice related to hazards and disasters in marginalized communities.

The event will kick off with speakers reflecting on the journey of the BAF—formally known as the William Averette Anderson Fund—and its future directions. Founders, doctoral student fellows, and alumni will discuss the organization’s history and mission, current programs and initiatives, and its vision for the next 10 years. The many contributions of time, funds, and guidance that have helped the Fund achieve its goals throughout the years and into the future will also be highlighted.

Initial remarks will be followed by an informal networking session where attendees can chat with members of the BAF community and celebrate the transformative impact that its network has had on the hazards and disaster field. There will be cake and plenty of time to learn about how you, too, can contribute to the legacy of Bill Anderson by supporting emerging scholars and practitioners.
