Meris Westberg is a graduate student in the University of Pennsylvania's Historic Preservation program writing a master's thesis on Flood Risk Awareness & Preparedness at Cultural Heritage Sites. Prior to grad school, Meris worked for several museums and noticed 1) a struggle to prioritize hazard preparedness and 2) a disconnect between buildings and collections maintenance. These tensions will be addressed in the thesis project, particularly from the perspectives of federal flood management policy and organizational behavior toward hazard management. 

This is a survey for collections and site managers asking about if & how flood risk is handled at their sites - with a particular interest in the interrelation of historic buildings and collections. The aim is to reach a broad range of site and collections steward to evaluate trends based on site type, size, and region. 

The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and is totally anonymous. Meris will share full results once the project is complete (hopefully by May!).
