Mark your calendar for the 27th Annual Governor's Hurricane Conference® to be held May 5-10, 2013 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Broward County Convention Center!
"We live in increasingly challenging times, and no one knows this better than Florida’s emergency response professionals. Given the current economic realities, there has never been a more critical time to ensure that disaster relief agencies work together to create synergy and positive change. As we come together again as partners and industry peers, we have the opportunity to enhance our professional knowledge, foster interagency coordination and cooperation, and work together in a dynamic, network-centered atmosphere to craft an approach that has the proficiency and flexibility to respond to the challenges and opportunities created by change. The Governor’s Hurricane Conference® has become the largest forum in the nation to offer cutting-edge sessions to expand our capacity as a state to effectively respond to a hurricane event. And we invite our colleagues from other vulnerable states and nations to share and learn with us. Working together gives us the greatest hope of successfully learning from the past and adequately planning and preparing for the future."
"With 48 training sessions and 52 workshops, our conference remains the premier event for the delivery of economical training and education to ensure our ability to adequately respond to, and recover from, tropical events. This year’s training sessions, workshops and general session will not only look at lessons learned from last year’s tropical events, but will also focus on innovative methods for “Moving Forward in Changing Times.” We welcome you to be a part of the discussion and contribute to our collective progress."
