Coming up next week, I will be meeting with two members of NHEMA to begin discusssing a number of topics including the concept of holding a joint NHLA/NHEMA conference at some point in the future. The NHLA Executive Board has begun discussing this topic, but I would like to hear from as many NHLA members as possible. Just leave a comment to this entry, or if you would prefer sending me an email directly, send it to skbutzel at cityofportsmouth dot com. Why would you like or not like to see NHLA hold a joint conference with NHEMA? Be as specific as possible. If we were to hold a joint conference at some point in the future, how could it better than previous joint conferences? Finally, if you would like to be a member of a future NHLA conference committee, please let me know that as well.
