V400: 2014 Coordinator’s Briefings

The Coordinator’s Briefings are an annual opportunity for VDEM to provide the latest information on state and federal policy and procedures regarding activities for local emergency management personnel, and to collect feedback from local emergency management personnel. Jurisdictions receiving EMPG funding are required to attend. VDEM encourages participants to use official vehicles for travel and attend the closest Coordinator’s Briefing as a one-day commute. Where necessary, VDEM will provide lodging reimbursement for each jurisdiction’s Director and Coordinator of Emergency Management (maximum two per jurisdiction) or their designated representative(s). Authorized personnel will be reimbursed for lodging if you travel more than 70 miles to the briefing site. All attendees who need lodging must make their own arrangements directly with the designated hotel. You may lodge at another hotel of your choice; but reimbursement will be at the state lodging rate. VDEM has established a room block at the hotel for each briefing. When calling to make reservations, please identify yourself as a VDEM Coordinator’s Briefing attendee. Check-in begins at 8 a.m., and the briefing begins at 9 a.m. for each session. Pre-enrollment is required. Walk-ins will NOT be permitted.  Register Here
