2018 Governor's Hurricane Conference: "Readiness Is Everyone's Job"

Palm Beach County Convention Center and Hilton West Palm Beach
West Palm Beach, Florida
event site  
The Governor’s Hurricane Conference is the largest forum in the nation that offers cutting-edge sessions to expand our readiness capacity to effectively enhance collaboration. Specifically structured to present information in a dynamic and network-centered atmosphere, the conference program provides extensive opportunities for emergency management practitioners from Florida and across the country to learn from each other
and create effective partnerships. With more than 40 training sessions and 50 workshops, the Governor’s Hurricane Conference remains the  premier event for the delivery of economical training and education to ensure our ability to adequately prepare for, respond to, and recover from, tropical cyclones. Working together gives us a significant advantage to successfully retool our hurricane plans and adequately prepare for  tropical events and their consequences. This year’s training sessions, workshops, and general session will focus on setting clear expectations to
reaffirm that “Readiness Is Everyone’s Job." Our virtual social media efforts, expansive exhibit hall, and improved conference “app,” each  provide opportunities to leverage technology and resources to further enhance your learning experience.
