Accelerating Adaptability in Emergency Management

EM Roundtable - Partnership Logo Event Page

We welcome you to join former FEMA Administrator Pete Gaynor, State of Vermont Emergency Management Director Erica Borneman, and President of McChrystal Group Chris Fussell, for a virtual Roundtable as they focus on and discuss adaptability and what it means for teams in emergency management.

Emergency managers are being asked to address incidents and events traditionally viewed as outside the realm of emergency management — and to do it efficiently and effectively while also maintaining the "blue sky" day to day operations. It's safe to say the description of what emergency managers are responsible for has expanded. The panel of experts will share tools, best practices, and strategies that high-performing, adaptable teams can use to move quickly and efficiently while keeping up with all the evolving pieces emergency managers are tasked with today.
