IAEM-USA Committees

IAEM-USA has Standing Committees, Ad Hoc Committees, and Caucuses. Standing Committees are bodies with an ongoing, operational function, and Ad Hoc Committees are formed to complete a specific assignment of limited duration. Caucuses are groups with a special focus or function within the practice of emergency management.

To Join an IAEM-USA Committee

IAEM-USA members interested in participating in an IAEM-USA committee should email the committee leadership and tell them how you can contribute to or learn from this committee’s important work. IAEM members may easily retrieve the committee leadership email addresses by downloading the complete list.

To Form a New Group

New groups can be formed with the approval of the IAEM-USA Board by presenting an issue paper identifying the group purpose, tasks, and composition. Caucuses must have at least 20 participants in order to be recognized as a caucus; an ad hoc committee can be appointed to initiate activity and assemble the critical mass needed.
