Registration isn’t open yet, but you can still plan for it …

If you are in emergency preparedness, you know planning ahead is smart. 

Preparing for the 2024 Disaster Planning Conference now… is also smart. 

Why? That’s easy. You can: 

  1. Take advantage of the reduced Early Bird registration when registration opens. Lower fees can mean a few things. Either more colleagues can go with you, or early planning allows you to have the budget for an additional educational event in 2024.  
  2. Arrange September’s staffing and vacation schedules in advance.
  3. Strategize where to get the rest of the CE you need. 

The 2024 Disaster Planning Conference will be in Pasadena this year. It’s sure to be as spectacular as ever. The committee members are just starting their work on bringing you relevant topics and expert speakers to deliver them. You don’t need an agenda to know the Disaster Planning Conference is a must-attend event of 2024.  

Tuition fees are for in-person or livestream.
Note: Livestreaming includes all keynote and general sessions plus select breakout sessions.
