MCDEMA 2014 Mid‐Winter Education Conference November 11‐13 Golden Moon Convention Center Mississippi Civil Defense Emergency Management Association will hold its 2014 Mid‐
Winter Education Conference November 11‐13, at the Golden Moon Convention Center in Choctaw, Mississippi. This year’s Mid‐Winter Education Conference will begin at 3 p.m. on Tuesday and conclude before noon Thursday. Federal, state, and local governmental leaders have been invited to speak during the session, which will also feature sessions on topics of interest to county emergency managers and first responders across our state. Vendors will have interesting displays, there will be a lessons learned session featuring local emergency managers, training sessions in a variety of disciplines and fields of practice, and the conference will include reports from MCDEMA officers and committee chairs dealing with plans of work for the 2015 fiscal year, and 2015‐16 officer nominations. MCDEMA officers and board have secured a favorable overnight sleeping room rate of $69 per night, plus any applicable taxes. Please call 1‐866‐447‐3275 to make room reservations, and use the conference code GMCDEM4, to receive the room rate of $69.00 per night, plus applicable taxes. Tuesday night in the Exhibit Hall will allow c0nference participants to visit with vendors and share some entertainment to assist the MCDEMA scholarship program. Prior to the start of the conference, there will be a MCDEMA, MEMA, Office of Homeland Security, and Mississippi State Department of Heath sponsored advanced ICS position‐specific training for Incident Commander. There will be a separate notification of that education program and registration form available for your review in coming weeks. This Mid‐Winter Education Conference education program has been developed with the focus on providing information and tools to assist local government in these uncertain times. Budget shortfalls have caused everyone in state and local government to manage time and resources efficiently and effectively. We urge you to attend, but if you are not able to attend the meeting, MCDEMA active members may submit in writing to Secretary/Treasurer Cindy Galey your nomination for Officers and Board of Directors elections.
