Summit on Crisis Management 2018

Jul 26, 2018
Washington, DC


Join Governing, Government Technology and Emergency Management for a one-of-a-kind, special issue Summit on Crisis Management: 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.

Ensuring the safety and long-term viability of communities requires investment in more effective emergency preparedness, response, and recovery systems. This includes financial planning to help mitigate and absorb immediate costs as well as long-range fiscal impacts. It also entails ramping up resiliency efforts and utilizing cutting-edge technologies to plan for emergencies and develop better real-time response mechanisms. Given the growing frequency of disruptive events, jurisdictions are prioritizing their planning and investment around those needs.

To address these timely and vital concerns, we 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.
