National Emergency Management Conference 2017

Making it happen: MCDEM Conference 2017

Conference included presentations from a range of knowledgeable and experienced leaders including Sir Mark Solomon (Ngai Tahu), Gilbert Enoka (all Blacks Mental Skills coach), Craig Fugate (ex-FEMA Administrator) and Rob Jamieson (Orion CEO). With insights and lessons in risk management, resilience, business continuity, behaviour change, science communication, strategy and innovation, the conference should provide something of value to those working across the National Security System, Civil Defence Emergency Management and beyond.

The 2017 Ministerial Awards and Directors awards were presented as part of Conference Dinner (07 June).  Awarded to those who have gone above and beyond, the awards are our chance to say thank you to some of CDEM's shining lights.
