NCEMA Spring 2019 Conference

From Our President

Greetings NC Teammates!

Your North Carolina Emergency Management Association Site and Program Committees are in high gear planning an outstanding Spring Conference but there is something missing…You!

Please make plans today to attend Spring Conference which is being held the week of March 24th through March 27th at the Harrah’s Cherokee Resort Conference Center located on the beautiful Qualia Boundary in Cherokee, North Carolina. There will also be opportunities to attend Training Classes offered by NCEM through March 29th at the Conference Center.

If you have never been to Cherokee before then you need to experience the stunning setting- gorgeous mountains and river. If you have been before you know how incredibly easy it is to park the day you arrive, attend meetings and training classes, eat amazing food, sleep, socialize and never have to move your vehicle until it’s time to go home.

For me, one of the most important parts of attending NCEMA Spring Conference is the networking. That time, in meetings, hallways and at breaks connecting with teammates from across the state, is invaluable. To find out how they do things where they are from, to ask State EM folks questions, to share the pain and lessons observed from the most recent tropical weather, wildfire, major special event or ice storm. Those of you who attended Fall Conference 2018 know it was a time of collectively taking a deep breath and debriefing the trials of Florence, Michael, tornadoes and the WEG (also, where we saw our Association Challenge Coin for the first time).

Still not convinced? Come and see your vendors face-to-face and put hands on that equipment you’ve only seen in pictures before. You might even see some things you never knew existed and get to hear about it first hand from the manufacturer or developer.

I am looking forward to resetting my brain and adjusting my attitude with all of you during a few days away at the NCEMA Spring Conference. Register and make your hotel reservation today!

Best Regards,

Karyn Yaussy
