About

The NEMA Annual Policy & Leadership Forum is held each fall, traditionally in the home state of the NEMA president.

The forum focus is on policy development, emergency management concerns, lessons learned, training and development, policy issues, and federal relations. The forum gives 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.
