Tidal Basin Speaking Engagements
Mitigation Trends and the Future of Federal Funding
The future of mitigation seems bright when reviewing the recent trends as they relate to federal funding available, or soon to be available, for non-disaster grants, i.e. BRIC and HMGP. Join us for a discussion on the current mitigation outlook, what was noticeable in the past, what communities and experts see now, and where mitigation is going based on funding trends.
Leadership Styles in Emergency Management
A quick Google search or glance at LinkedIn will provide a multitude of information on leadership and leadership styles. While such articles may be informative to read, we may wonder, what does this mean to me? How does this apply in Emergency Management? Leaders aren’t born. They are developed. Get past the noise to discover the leader you are and how to become the leader you want to be. This session will explore some of the common styles of leadership, help participants set goals for development, and relate styles to the emergency management field.
