Members fought the blizzard snow storm to attend the February Chapter meeting at the Mc Graw Hill conference center. LT COL Jerome Hatfield, NJSP (Ret.) FEMA R2 Regional Administrator provided an informative presentation about the need for public-private partnerships for both planning and recovery from serious events. Below is a photo of Chairman George W. Anderson presenting LT COL Jerome Hatfield with a speaker appreciation award. Our thanks to the folks at Mc Graw Hill for providing us with an excellent meeting venue, including Bob Pritchard, Vice President Corporate Security and Cal Mathis, Director of Crisis Management at Mc Graw Hill.
