New Addition to the Conference: The 2011 National Training Expo
The National UASI Homeland Security Conference has become the best event of the year for networking, training and learning. From Miami to Charlotte to New Orleans, we have produced the Nation’s premier homeland security and emergency management conference. This year's conference in San Francisco is shaping up to be our best conference yet.
In addition to the best practice panels you have come to expect Monday, June 20, thru Wednesday, June 22, we are very pleased to announce a new addition to this year’s Conference - The 2011 National Training Expo which will be held in San Francisco on Thursday, June 23rd along with FEMA's After Action Conference. This Expo is a first for us and we are inviting all of our federal partners and nonprofit training providers. It will add real value to the conference for participants since you will be able to learn about, and sign up for, training that in most cases is provided to first responders in your jurisdiction at no cost. When you register for the 2011 UASI Homeland Security Conference, plan on being in San Francisco from June 20-23 and include The National Training Expo 2011.
In addition to the Expo, San Francisco will be providing tours of facilities and equipment like its’ EOC and watercraft on after the formal conference, so plan on staying in the Bay Area for Thursday and Friday for post conference events and activities.
San Francisco will mark an important transition for the Conference, with a new, fresh approach to the tracks, panels and presentations. You will also notice the change in our name, we have become The National UASI Homeland Security Conference. In San Francisco, our Conference will include all FEMA grantees; States, Urban Areas, Sovereign Nation’s, Territories, Port and Transit Systems, MMRS and Buffer Zone Programs. So, this will be the one meeting this year you really want to attend.
Teresa Serata and the local Host Committee, the City of San Francisco and the Bay Area Super UASI are putting together the best National Conference yet. We will keep you informed as Conference planning progresses with regular updates and encourage you to register now at urbanareas.org.
