DDAT Spring 2016 Program and Business Meeting

On Thursday, March 25, DDAT held their annual spring program and business meeting at the Dover Public Library. The program, entitled: The DDAT-iAEM@UD Partnership: Resources and Projects to Support Your Organization's Disaster Preparedness focused on the efforts of the student chapter of the International Association of Emergency Managers at the University of Delaware and Summer Service Learning Fellows from UD to DDAT during the summer, 2015, months.

Brandon Bristor and Megan Hewitt presented their poster "Achieving Cultural Heritage Preservation Through Professional Partnership" which will be exhibited at the 2016 AIC conference in Montreal, and discussed the tools and resources they created for DDAT during their fellowships.

Valerie Marlowe was to discuss the Preservation Preparedness Alliance, a partnership project between iAEM@UD and DDAT, which provides unique support to DDAT member institutions in developing or enhancing their emergency response plans and related tools and activities. In her absence, DDAT members that went through the PPA process discussed their experiences and outcomes from the project.

Valerie Marlowe is the immediate past president of iAEM@UD, the student chapter of the International Association of Emergency Managers at the University of Delaware. Brandon Bristor and Megan Hewitt served as Summer Service Learning Fellows from UD to DDAT during the Summer, 2015, months.
