FEPA 2015 Mid-Year Meeting and Work Session

Planning is completed for the 2015 FEPA Mid-Year Work Session at the Clearwater Beach Hilton.  FEPA Mid-Year is scheduled for August 12-14, 2015 and includes opportunities for both pre-session and post-session training.  FEPA will present the County Emergency Management Program Director/Key Staff Training on Monday and Tuesday, August 10-11, 2015 immediately preceding Mid-Year.  A WebEOC Basic Administrator training course is scheduled from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm on Friday, August 14, 2015 following the close of the 2015 Mid-Year Work Session.  FEMA Procurement Disaster Assistance Team training is also offered on Friday afternoon from 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm.  This training provides an overview of the federal procurement requirements found in 2 CFR, Part 200, often referred to as the "Super-circular".

A nominal registration fee of $25 for FEPA members and $50 for non-FEPA members will help off-set meeting costs related to audio/visual support, meeting room internet access and breaks.   The FEPA Mid-Year Work Session has become an extremely popular event and these amenities contribute greatly to a productive meeting environment. 

Unfortunately, access to the FEPA room block at the Clearwater Beach Hilton has closed.  There are many hotels in the surrounding area, particlarly in Clearwater, that offer very competitive rates, many of which offer government rates.
