The 2021 IAEM Awards Nomination Period opened Apr. 9, and will run through 11:59 p.m. EDT, May 31. This is an opportunity to recognize the best emergency management programs and individuals for 2020 accomplishments. This year, IAEM launched the first ever online submission portal for the Awards Program, making this process even easier. The awards have a variety of categories spanning global and U.S. emergency managers, students, uniformed services, and volunteer organizations. Learn more about the program on IAEM website. Do you want to nominate a worthy colleague, student, or program but not sure how to start the process? IAEM is hosting a webinar on Apr. 20 to review the program, application process, and answer questions. The past year was a difficult one, but emergency managers put in the long hours to ensure that communities stayed safe and protected throughout the pandemic and natural disasters. Give them the honor and recognition they deserve by nominating them for an IAEM Award.
