About

NEMA, the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), and the Governors' Homeland Security Advisors Council (GHSAC) have formed a joint policy work group to identify ways in which state emergency management, public health and homeland security entities can work more closely together to enhance national preparedness efforts.

The National Homeland Security Consortium is a unique, one-of-a-kind group of state and local organizations, elected officials, and the private sector who work together to address the complex challenges of homeland security.
