PrepTalks Symposium to be held from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm in Washington, D.C. on January 29, 2018

For those that can attend.  See you there.   CDS

I just love the diversity and inclusion
Regrettably BEMA International is not a partner in the emergency management community, but we survive.


PrepTalks are given by subject matter experts and thought leaders to spread new ideas, spark conversation, and promote innovative leadership for the issues confronting emergency managers now and over the next 20 years.
PrepTalks are a partnership of the emergency management community:
·        The Federal Emergency Management Agency
·        The International Association of Emergency Managers 
·        The Naval Postgraduate School Center for Homeland Defense and Security
·        The National Emergency Management Association
·        The National Homeland Security Consortium

The registration page for the January 29, 2018 Symposium is now live at:

It is important for attendees to know:
· The PrepTalk presentations will be filmed, so attendees will not be able to enter or leave the auditorium during the program.  Attendees are expected to stay for the duration of the program, from 12:00pm to 5:00 pm. 
· There will be a short Q&A after each presentation and audience members will be able to ask questions.
