Back when I was Chair of the American Bar Association's Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice from 2004-2005, I had a hand in creating the Section's annual Homeland Security Institute program. I am very proud of what this annual program has become under the stellar leadership of Joe Whitley, who has chaired (with Lynne Zusman in the early years) this conference from the beginning. Joe, by the way, is the Ad Law Section's chair-elect, and he will become the chair in August.
Each year, the speaker lineup for the Homeland Security Institute seem to get better and better -- even though topping the previous one gets harder and harder. This year's conference, which will be held on June 20-21 at the Capital Hilton in Washington, DC, is no exception. The program is chock full of good sessions lead by experts in the field, including several current and former high-ranking government officials. The full program brochure is here.
If you are in any way involved in the fileds of homeland security, disaster relief, emergency response, or the like, this upcoming program certainly warrants your attention.
