The Pacific Northwest Economic Region (PNWER) is very unique in that it is multi-national, public-private and bi-partisan in how it is organized and operates on a day-to-day basis. One organizational element of PNWER is its Center for Regional Disaster Resilience (CRDR) [Note: the Disaster Zone Podcast Host, Eric Holdeman is the Director]. In this podcast Matt Morrison, the Executive Director of PNWER is interviewed about how PNWER is organized and then we transition to talking about public private partnerships, critical infrastructures and how to keep those relationships functional. During the podcast we also touched on the Regional Consortium Coordinating Council (RC3) and how it functions at the national level.
