Over 170 practitioners ranging from national, regional and state leaders to on-the-ground practitioners from across the United States gathered in Reno, NV March 26-29 for a shared learning experience centered around implementation of the Cohesive Strategy. 

The goal of the workshop was to provide a innovative, interactive, learning environment where people can learn from the experiences of others - in terms of success as well as barriers to achievement. With Micro-Talks, hands-on sessions, panel discussions, and an inspiring wrap up from John Ruhs, NIFC Fire Director for the Bureau of Land Management, the Workshop exceeded all our expectations. The program and presentations are archived here. We are looking forward to #CohesiveStrategy2019! Stay tuned for details! More photos and information from the Workshop here.
