National Emergency Management Conference 2018 - Partners for Resilience

MCDEM Conference - Partners for Resilience

The 2018 National Emergency Management Conference is fast approaching. This year’s conference will be held in conjunction with the Australasian Natural Hazards Management Conference, focusing on the theme ‘Partners for Resilience’.

Bringing together a range of experienced and knowledgeable speakers including Mark McCrindle, Holly Ransom and Mark Crosweller, the 2018 conference will focus on providing insight, advice and discussions that will be both relevant and engaging for emergency management professionals.

In the days surrounding the main conference, a range of topical workshops will be held. Workshops are a great way of getting a more hands on perspective, as well as a fantastic opportunity to meet people from a range of organisations and sectors. However this year’s workshops are organised and registered for separately from the conference. Workshops will be listed below as they become available.

On 30 May at the annual Awards Dinner, the 2018 Ministerial and Directors awards will be presented as a way of celebrating achievements across the emergency management sector. This is a fantastic way to acknowledge the successes of colleagues from across the sector, all are welcome.
