Welcome to the
7th Annual 2008 Homeland Security Conference website

Events throughout the world and incidents closer to home have underscored the unrelenting need to enhance preparedness, expand prevention efforts, and improve response capabilities to terrorist threats against our nation. To address these challenges, the Seventh Annual Homeland Security Conference will present nationally renowned experts who will guide participants in optimizing homeland security resources. Conference speakers will identify and discuss emerging threats, highlight cutting edge technological resources, share expertise in conducting risk assessments, assist in the formulation of appropriate response strategies, and facilitate the development of inter-disciplinary partnerships to ensure the safety and security of our nation.

We are in the planning process for this year's conference and should have information on dates, place, registration, and scholarships soon so please check back often.  In the meantime, please use the links to the left to view information on past conferences and to contact us with questions.

Our goal is to educate and inform all communities locally, statewide, regionally and nationally, ensuring that all safety, police, fire, security, rescue, response, medical and civilian personnel will matrix all their skills and efforts at all levels to:

  • prepare and protect
  • respond and resolve
  • safeguard and secure

all of our people and resources in a positive, effective, and efficient effort in any and all Homeland Security issues and concerns.
