event site (detailed agenda and online registration)
Join Governing, Government Technology and Emergency Management for a one-of-a-kind, special issue Summit on Crisis Management, to be held at the Mayflower Hotel (Autograph Collection), 1127 Connecticut Ave. NW, Washington, DC. The nation’s recent spate of natural and man-made disasters serves as a poignant reminder that crisis management is a complex and dynamic set of challenges – and an increasingly acute concern to state and local officials. To address these concerns, the summit will bring together top officials, leading issue experts, and industry partners who support government resiliency, emergency planning and mitigation efforts. State and local elected officials and agency directors, as well as public safety leaders will share lessons learned from having led their communities through crises. The program will offer tactical and strategic advice, and the tools to inform leadership decisions well before a crisis - as well as when disaster strikes. Keynote speakers are Daniel Kaniewski, Ph.D., deputy administrator, Protection and National Preparedness, FEMA; and Dr. Stephen Flynn, founding director, Global Resilience Institute, Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts.

The Blue Ribbon Study Panel on Biodefense will hold this public special focus meeting. This meeting of the study panel, chaired by former Rep. Jim Greenwood and co-chaired by former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, will provide the panel with a better understanding of private sector views on: financial impacts of large-scale biological incidents; public-private partnerships and collaboration in advance of such incidents; and how the private sector can contribute to biodefense, especially before federal assets are mobilized and after federal resources are exhausted.
