IAEM-USA Open House

IAEM-USA Committee and Caucus Open House

There are 10 committees and 22 caucuses. Committees have an ongoing, operational function and deal with a specified area for IAEM-USA (i.e., Membership, Bylaws, DEI, Editorial, Government Affairs, Training & Education, and more). Caucuses are with a special focus or function within the practice of emergency management and provide advice to the organization (i.e., Children and Disasters, Healthcare, Universities and Colleges, K-12 Education, Emerging Professionals, and more.)

Information on each group may be found by following the group’s link from the main Committee and Caucus webpage.
