EMForum.org is pleased to host a one hour presentation and interactive discussion Wednesday, August 24, 2011, beginning at 11:00 AM Central time. Our topic will be a new paper, recently released by IAEM-USA for review and comment, titled Preparedness: A Principled Approach to Return on Investment. The paper presents a proposed process to developing measures of return on investment for preparedness grant programs, especially the Emergency Management Performance Grant program (EMPG), based on previously articulated emergency management principles. IAEM requests that review comments be submitted by September 2, 2011.
Our guest will be IAEM-USA Governmental Affairs Committee Chair Randall C. Duncan, and Director of the Sedgwick County, Kansas Department of Emergency Management. Mr. Duncan is a past president of IAEM and chair of its Domestic Preparedness Committee. He is in his second appointed term serving as a member of the Kansas Governor's Commission on Emergency Planning and Response, and a past Chair of the Commission. Duncan was named as a Kansas Certified Emergency Manager in 1992, an IAEM CEM® in 1993, and an Oklahoma Certified Emergency Manager in 1994.
