Virtual Washington Conference – 2021

Meeting Documents

Legislative Briefs

**Unfortunately, the EMA Executive Committee made the tough decision to not go forward with our in-person DC Conference and “Day on the Hill” scheduled for May 12-14. Washington, DC is not expected to lift the 10 person indoor gathering limit by May and Congress is unlikely to allow in-person meetings until this Fall.

The Executive Committee still plans to have a Virtual Spring Conference and has approved the schedule for May 10-14 below. Our Virtual Day on the Hill with lawmakers will be held on Wednesday, May 12th. EMA State Executives can decide how best to schedule virtual meetings with their lawmakers by using their own Zoom/Microsoft Teams invite or the lawmaker’s staff can help facilitate a virtual meeting for the state associations. EMA staff will send out updated issue briefs as we get closer to the date.
