NEMA’s Annual Forum 2021 provides the opportunity to discuss national and regional emergency management strategies with other emergency management professionals from around the country and with experts in the field.
The forums focus on policy development, emergency management concerns, lessons learned, training and development, policy issues, and federal relations. They give attendees the opportunity to hear, first-hand, the latest on issues that impact their agencies' programs. No other source can provide the current, comprehensive, behind-the-scenes information that NEMA forums offer.
Who Should Attend
Most states are represented at The NEMA Annual Forum 2021 and as a result, federal agencies, members of Congress and the current Administration, and others attend the meeting so that they can discuss policy and program issues and get input from state directors.
Average attendance for the Annual Forum is 425 emergency management professions made up of state emergency management directors, state staff, product and service providers, federal partners, organizations and others in the field. The schedule format is four days and includes committee meetings, professional development workshops and a plenary session along with several networking opportunities. A two-day exhibition showcasing forum sponsors is also featured.
