We are excited about the opportunity to bring the conference to you in a virtual world!

As we convene this year from our individual work spaces, the world outside our walls is chaotic, unsettling, and unpredictable in ways that we have not previously encountered.  To say that we have had to adapt our daily lives in order to maintain our existence this year is an unmitigated understatement.  Yet, here we are, coming together once again, to share our knowledge and experiences in mitigating the risks our communities face.  With each abstract written, each step taken to plan the conference agenda, every reservation/cancellation, new software explored, and each and every painstaking decision, we are defining resilience and innovation in an ever-changing world.  The 2020 KAMM conference is a result of Mitigation in a Virtual World, because you Can’t Stop KAMM!

The 2-day conference agenda is crafted to not only enhance your mitigation education over a variety of mitigation topics, but to provide a virtual taste of the KAMM social networking that our members have come to appreciate over the 16 years that we have been serving the Commonwealth’s mitigation stakeholders. Our sessions explore multiple hazards, grant programs, regulations and program integrations.  We will continue to celebrate and recognize mitigation leaders, partners, and successful projects with our annual KAMM awards and our premier 2020 Community Mitigation Grants.  We will provide an on-demand option so you can revisit sessions after the conference.  Our conference speakers are lined up!  Our virtual conference is jam-packed with mitigation experts!

Preconference Agenda – September 21

Free to KAMM Members

Preconference Day:  Our preconference day is free to KAMM members.  The workshops provide overviews of two areas that are instrumental in mitigating risks in our communities.  Understanding the National Flood Insurance Program is imperative for local officials and floodplain managers, and our afternoon workshop will detail how to determine substantial damages following a disaster.  Both workshops are vital to the roles of floodplain administrators, emergency managers, and mitigation leaders.  Between sessions, please join a virtual committee meeting!  We encourage KAMM members to participate in KAMM committees which provide opportunities to network and promote issues, challenges, and best practices that are important to them.  We moved our committee meetings to Monday and scheduled them back-to-back so that you can participate in all four committees!  

Link to the updated Preconference Agenda so you can plan your day.
