In recognition of this support, FLASH has now named Erika Peterman, Vice President Construction North America for BASF’s Performance Materials, board member of the year. She was awarded for her many contributions, including those toward #HurricaneStrong, a national collaboration that encourages hurricane safety and building resilience. FLASH is a non-profit organization and leading consumer advocate in the U.S. for strengthening homes and safeguarding families from human made and natural disasters. Over the past years BASF has supported the FLASH community, working together to raise awareness of disaster resilience practices in North America as well as beyond, and contributing to improve the durability of homes, buildings, coastal landscapes and critical infrastructure. Erika Peterman received the award during the National Disaster Resilience Conference in Clearwater, Florida.
