NCEMA Strategic Plan
In January of 2015, our Association began a strategic planning process to evaluate the current role of the Association and to identify short term and long term goals to improve our organization’s value to our membership. This process included two open surveys to gain feedback and a strategic planning workshop that involved the NCEMA Executive Committee, the Strategic Planning Committee and all committee chairs. Then; during the 2015 Fall Conference; the Strategic Plan (see attached document) was approved by the Association's "General Membership."
The approved Strategic Plan contained specific objectives that were assigned to the various committees. These committees then met and identified multiple tasks they would pursue to implement their assigned objectives……which they are currently working to complete. In fact, some of the identified tasks have already been accomplished; while others may take a year (or more) to finalize.

Resolve to be Ready
This year's Resolve to be Ready campaign focuses on 'Family Connection' to reinforce the importance of parents including their children in preparedness conversations in advance of potential disasters. The Ready campaign makes an emergency preparedness resolution easy to keep by recommending families consider these three ideas when making a plan: who to call, where to meet and what to pack.
