Emergency Services Administrative Professionals Conference

Landscape University Crest

Partnering to Make a Difference

Partnering to Make a Difference: The Multifacted Responsibilities of the Administrative Professional Conference is the source of information, support, and expertise for people like you—emergency management professionals at all levels of government and the private sector who prepare for, mitigate, respond to, recover from, and provide products and services for all emergencies, disasters, and threats to the nation's security.

Effective emergency management relies on integration of emergency plans at all levels of government and non-government. Activities at each level (individual, group, community) affect other levels.
