2018 Coastal Bend Hurricane Conference

May  2-3, 2018
Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds

The Coastal Bend Emergency Management Association (CBEMA) and Nueces County are hosting the 8th annual Coastal Bend Hurricane Conference.  This conference has been a great success, drawing professionals from the lower Texas Coast and ensuring all community stakeholders have access to high quality training and networking that is typically only available at a lager more expensive, state and national level conference. The audience includes professionals with experience ranging from those new to emergency management, to those who are expert emergency managers; and incorporates the full range of local, state and federal government responders and policy makers, volunteer organizations, healthcare professionals, private business and industry representatives.
