#IACLEA2019 Pre-conference Training: Emergency Preparedness

For the second consecutive year, IACLEA is excited to offer a one-day, pre-conference workshop to be held June 24, 2019, 9 am–4 pm. Last year’s workshop on the Clery Act was an overwhelming success. This year’s topic—emergency preparedness—looks to be equally successful, given the variety of high-profile incidents affecting campus communities.

Preparation for an emergency is essential in today’s campus environment. The risks for mishandling such crises are significant: the potential loss of life, penalties for non-compliance with federal regulations, litigation, the risk of harm to public safety personnel, applicants choosing schools based on their state of readiness, for example. Campus public safety agencies and personnel must be prepared with the most up-to-date techniques and strategies to ensure that their institutions are capable of managing an emergency.

The workshop will be divided into three overarching topics: planning and prevention, managing an incident, and recovery.

Presented in a series of panel discussions, subject matter experts will dive into what you need to know about specific topics, such as designing a successful tabletop exercise, working effectively with your administration during an incident, and continuity of operations.

This session is valuable for agency heads, command staff, and institution emergency management personnel.

If you have questions about the pre-conference workshop, please contact Director of Training Josh Bronson at or 202-618-8840.
