Alliance for Response forums have led to the formation of numerous cooperative disaster networks across the country. These networks are made up of a variety of members, from staff and volunteers at local cultural institutions, to conservators in private practice, to first responders and emergency managers. With a diverse membership, each network benefits from unique perspectives underscored by shared values.

Some networks have many members; others, few. Some meet every two months; others meet quarterly, twice a year, or when time and energy permit. Some have a formal governance structure; others are exploring that direction. Some communicate via email; others, through a listserv or a robust website. What unites them all is their desire to continue the emergency preparedness dialogue begun at their AFR kick-off forum.
