The annual Educators and Practitioners Summit "Discovering Communities of Practice and Career Pathways in HSEM" is taking place on June 17, 2014, at the McGavick Conference Center in Lakewood, WA.

The Summit focuses on discovering and defining the broad educational career pathways available to people in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors of safety and security, Cyber Security, risk and all hazards emergency management.

These "communities of practice" will come together to share their knowledge and expertise and provide participants an opportunity to network with educators from around the country, emergency management practitioners, program administrators, public organizations, business, and industry professionals and students from across the state and region.

The Summit is free thanks to Supporters and Sponsors.
