What We Do

The NCHUG formed in March, 2009.

The group is comprised of a wide variety of North Carolina Hazus practitioners (ranging from the casual enthusiast to the power user) and representatives of diverse disciplines - such as planning, first response, local government decision making, GIS analysis, emergency management and software development.

You can join too. There are no dues or exams to become or remain a member. We hold quarterly conference calls focused on the latest software developments and news. This is the perfect forum to talk about Hazus with other nearby users. We also typically host a guest speaker who will present their Hazus project or related work to the group. If you are interested in presenting during one of our calls please let Eric know.

To join the group, email Eric. Information at lower-left of this page.
