Australian and New Zealand Disaster and Emergency Management Conference

DMC Logo PNGWith seven years of history, this Conference is critical to education, professional development and strategic direction for the multifaceted emergency services industry. This is no ordinary business Conference. We learn from champions in the industry with evidence based research and practical or pragmatic resource management strategies. We also focus on the connection with mental health and the humanitarian side of disaster management, the people factor - our survivors, victims and ourselves, the responders, the strategists and the managers. We are committed to the continuation and extension of our solid reputation for another highly anticipated and successful year. Join us in 2018!

New CEO: We welcome Chief Executive Officer of the Australian and New Zealand Mental Health Association, Mr Sam Stewart, to the Conference Committee. It is exciting to have a fresh new face, new focus and new drive for the Conference that is reflective in the educational program, the delegate experience and the business practices that enable our industry leaders to perform at their finest!
