Arkansas Tech University in Russellville  was the first institution in the world to offer an accredited degree program in emergency management, so it's a natural place to bring together experts in the field for a conference April 10th.   

The university will welcome emergency managers and affiliated personnel from the private and public sectors for the Journal of Preparedness and Recovery  Conference on Preparedness and Recovery.

The Conference will include a keynote address from James Lee Witt, former director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.   Other speakers during the conference will include Kay C. Goss, president of World Disaster Management LLC, and Amber Styles-Emerson, continuity of operations manager for the Arkansas Department of Information Systems.

Registration for the Conference will be $100 for practitioners in the industry, $25 for students and $500 for exhibitors.
