Emergency management is an ever-changing field. No two disasters are alike, and the steps needed to prepare for and respond to them are equally as fluid. Fresh perspectives and innovative ideas are a necessity in creating a safer, more resilient future for our communities. That is why the New Jersey Emergency Preparedness Association is proud to host our Higher Education Challenge—an invitation for our up-and-coming emergency managers to present their insights and solutions into the changing climate of emergency management.
NJEPA is proud to once again offer the Young Professionals Engagement Event this year. This session is designed for those who are new to Emergency Management or looking to get started in the field. You will have the opportunity to ask industry leaders questions about the field, get career advice, network and learn how Emergency Management integrates every industry in the public and private sector. Program elements will include a panel discussion with veteran Emergency Management professionals, a presentation from a higher education institution, networking opportunities, and a chance to win free attendance at next year's Conference.
Panelists are currently being finalized.
