Based on the idea behind FEMA Think Tanks, IAEM has launched a medium to engage our partners, promote innovation, and facilitate discussions in the field of emergency management. As a benefit of membership, IAEM will provide access to Think Tank videos or podcasts following the events. IAEM Think Tanks are organized by the IAEM-USA Digital Engagement Committee, and ideas for future sessions can be sent to Eric Kant, committee chair.
