A two-night technical symposium on earthquake recovery for contractors will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. Thursday and Friday at the Warner Center Marriott in Woodland Hills.

The sessions are co-sponsored by the Greater Los Angeles/Ventura chapter of the Building Industry Assn., the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the state Office of Emergency Services.
A fee of $40 will offset the cost of materials.
