Professional Conference Opportunities
The EMHS Program has a presence at a variety of professional conferences throughout the year. We recruit students to attend these conference with us, which provides participants with incredible networking opportunities and insight into current issues in the world of emergency management and homeland security. Our Program attends the National Emergency Managers Association (NEMA) Forum twice a year, in March and October; the Florida Emergency Preparedness Association (FEPA) Forum every Janaury; the Governor's Hurricane Conference (GHC) every May; and the Intelligence and National Security Summit (INSS) once a year.
In general, recruitment for these events happens via class announcements in Canvas. Students who would like more information can contact Sierra Perna, our Student Outreach Coordinator.
