RE: EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT LEADERSHIP FOR LOCAL ELECTED OFFICIALS
I look forward to meeting with many of you next week at our Annual Conference in Atlantic City. And speaking of the Conference, here’s one session that would be well worth your time and attention.
EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT LEADERSHIP FOR LOCAL ELECTED OFFICIALS
Wednesday, November 20, 2013
2:00 p.m. – 3:40 p.m.
Atlantic City Convention Center
Pittsgrove Mayor Linda DuBois, a member of the League’s Emergency Management Preparedness Task Force, will preside at this session that will provide local leaders with an overview of important information that is vital in preparing for and responding to any type of emergency or crisis/disaster that their community may face.
An expert panel of speakers will feature: Major Patrick Callahan, Commanding Officer, Emergency Management Section, New Jersey State Police; Mary J. Goepfert, External Affairs/AFN Liaison, New Jersey Office of Emergency Management; Edward Dickson, Director, Homeland Security and Preparedness; William Kelleher, Homeland Security Branch, Emergency Management Section, Recovery/Preparedness, New Jersey State Police; and Jeffrey L. Pompper, Executive Director, Emergency Management Coordinator, Department of Emergency Services, Salem County.
The curriculum will emphasize the role that executive leadership and elected officials play in preparing for, responding to, recovering from, and managing emergencies or crisis/disasters and their aftermath. Emphasis will be on their understanding of the role that the federal, state governments play in resource management and identifying funding requirements.
We hope that you will be able to participate at this informative session, next Wednesday in Atlantic City.
