SWAD is a free daylong seminar open to the public, with registration. It’ll be held in the Trevecca Nazarene University Conference Center, at 333 Murfreesboro Road from 9am until 4:30pm.

Two presentations will be given on the 10th anniversary of the Gallatin, TN Tornado. I’ll be part of local media panel discussion, fielding your questions.
