Keynote Speaker Biography:

Mr. Miller served as FEMA’s associate administrator for the Federal Insurance & Mitigation Administration from Sept. 2011 to April 2015. Prior to that, he was the administrator of the Iowa Homeland Security & Emergency Management Division from 2004-2011. During his tenure, he served as the Governor’s Authorized Representative for eleven president-declared major disasters, including the 2008 flooding disaster that was the largest disaster to occur in the state of Iowa &, at that time, was the fifth largest disaster in the United States. Total federal dollars obligated topped $1.2 billion & included more than $350 million in hazard mitigation funding. Under Mr. Miller’s leadership, Iowa was one of only twelve states to achieve national accreditation under the Emergency Management Accreditation Program, allowing for increased funding under FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program.

Dave was in on the ground floor of the development of Safeguard Iowa Parntership & will give us a perspective on the inception & progress over the past eight years, as well as, our standing in the eyes of the federal government.
