The Diva just returned from FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute in Emmitsburg, MD, for the 24th annual symposium. This is the first one to be live in 3 years.
It was nice to see old friends and familiar faces, and I met lots of newcomers to the field. I welcome comments from readers who were there.
Of special interest to me is the availability and knowledge of potential users of new text books, since I am the editor of some in recent years. There were several sessions devoted to new books and help for potential authors of books.
What surprised me is how much improvement is needed to bring new books to the attention of potential adopters. Readers of this blog know we feature book reviews, and a full page of this website is devoted to completed Book Reviews. I welcome suggestions about how we can create a better and faster way of calling new books to the attention of adopters.
