Community Resilience Panel - NIST rounded[1]

The Panel provided a unique opportunity to enable the interaction between people in different infrastructure sectors thereby allowing for identification of interdependencies and gaps/differences in the infrastructure design philosophies across sectors.

The standing committees were responsible for the development of their own project plans. The standing committees informed the development of important reference materials necessary to implement communities’ resilience plans. The Panel had the ability to form additional standing committees and ad-hoc working groups as deemed appropriate.

The Panel, through its standing committees, developed products to be stored and distributed to the public through the Resilience Knowledge Base (RKB). Information in the RKB was also intended to  include existing best practices, case studies, guidance documents, tools, potential solutions, and other informative reference materials that help communities develop and implement their resilience plans.

The Community Resilience Panel Coordinating Committee (CRPCC) managed and guided the standing committees, and acted as a gatekeeper between the standing committees and the Panel at large. The CRPCC approved documents (though a vote) proposed by the standing committees, before going to a vote for approval by the Panel at large.
