Message from the 2020 WSEMA President

Fellow Emergency Managers,


2020 WSEMA Conference

As the 2020 Washington State Emergency Management Association (WSEMA) President, it is my pleasure to announce the 2020 WSEMA conference to take place on September 14-16 at the Northern Quest in Spokane!

2020 marks the 50 year anniversary of WSEMA and it would be a pleasure to have you join us at the conference this year to celebrate where we’ve been, where we are, and where we are going.  Our greatest strength as an association is the knowledge and experience of our members, so it only makes sense that you come and share your experiences and memories of our profession.

2020 LEPC/Tribal Conference

This year, the LEPC/Tribal Conference will directly follow the WSEMA Conference beginning at 1pm on Wednesday, September 16th.


This is also the time for you to renew or become a member of WSEMA.  You can do that by following this link:

We are in the process of updating our website but the dues will remain as they have in previous years, with the exception of 2019 when we waved all dues.

Membership dues are as follows:

Full Member – $80

Associate – $60

Student – $40

Lifetime – Designated to former WSEMA Presidents who have retired from the emergency management profession

YOU make WSEMA and so I encourage each of you to plug into the association.  Contact us here: or reach out to one of the board members for ways to connect and help in the organization.

I appreciate you and the work you do on a daily basis for the residents of Washington State.
