The IAEM Bulletin, the official newsletter of the International Association of Emergency Managers, is published monthly by IAEM to keep members abreast of association news, government actions affecting emergency management, and research and information sources. The Bulletin – which is in its 36th year of continuous publication – is also intended to serve as a way for emergency management colleagues to exchange information on programs and ideas. The members-only IAEM Bulletin, generally 24-40 pages, moved from print to electronic publishing in 2014. Past issues are available in the members-only IAEM Bulletin Archives.
There are three 2020 complimentary issues of the IAEM Bulletin linked below. Please share these issues with your EM colleagues, and encourage them to join our association:
The Bulletin is distributed electronically via the members-only archives to more than 6,000 emergency management officials each month, representing all levels of government, industrial, commercial, educational, military, private, non-profit and volunteer organizations. The newsletter is also shared with allied organizations and legislative representatives with a role in emergency management issues.
Please read the Author's Guidelines before submitting an article for the IAEM Bulletin. For the issues that are not special focus issues, articles on any topic of interest to emergency management professionals are welcome. Feature article length should be 750-1,500 words, and articles should be emailed to the editor as attached Word documents or included in the text of the email (no PDF submissions, please). Photos or illustrations must be emailed as separate image attachments (TIF, GIF, JPG, PNG). Learn more here.
The IAEM Bulletin Advertising Policy includes information about placing display ads in the IAEM Bulletin, including ad sizes, ad formats, ad costs, and IAEM member discounts.
At least four times a year, the IAEM Bulletin includes a special focus section on a selected topic of interest to emergency management. The other eight issues of this monthly publication include articles on a wide variety of topics related to emergency management. The IAEM Editorial Committee recommends the topics for the 2021 IAEM Bulletin special focus issues, and announces them after board approval. This year the focus will be on various aspects of the conference theme, “IAEM 2021: Looking Back to Look Ahead.”
We will see lasting effects for emergency management based on 2020. From last year’s final conference theme – “IAEM Reimagined” to this year’s theme – “Looking Back to Look Ahead” – we are trying to get our heads and arms around the NEXT new normal. Events have been unpredictable and unprecedented, moving so fast it is often hard to keep up! Let’s pause for a moment to share our impressions, thoughts and stories about how we could, did or did not cope.
