Emergency Management Policy & Leadership Forum
Each year, NEMA’s two national forums provide opportunities to discuss national and regional emergency management strategies with other emergency management professionals from around the country and with experts in the field.
The conferences focus on policy development, emergency management concerns, legislative 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.
The vast majority of states are represented at NEMA foruoms. For that reason, federal agencies, members of Congress and the current Administration, and others attend the meetings so that they can discuss policy and program issues and get input from state directors.
