Workshops are presented at breakout sessions throughout the two days of the conference. The sessions are 60 to 90 minutes long, and include subjects affecting the many audiences at the Conference.
Topics may be presented in a variety of ways. In previous conferences, presentation styles have ranged from "Lessons Learned" from exercises and events, to traditional classroom presentation, to panel discussions with experts in a particular subject. Based on your evaluations from previous conferences, the most popular workshops have been those that draw on real-world experiences.
The Conference is part of the "Maine Prepares" initiative, which focuses on emergency preparedness for a range of audiences.
Some guidelines for topic proposals:
The annual Maine Partners in Emergency Preparedness Conference grew out of the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC) popular annual Hazardous Materials (Hazmat) Conference. In the spirit of "all hazard preparedness", in 2009 MEMA expanded this platform to address the full spectrum of hazards in Maine, as well as to involve an even wider circle of public, private and non-profit partners. At the same time the emphasis on Hazardous Materials was maintained for this important segment of our response community. Session materials from previous conferences can be reviewed at the Conference website.
Help make the Sixth Annual the best Maine Partners in Emergency Preparedness Conference to date.
