SEMA will offer a series of regional planning workshops to prepare for training courses and exercises in 2016. The agenda will include a discussion of 2015 courses and exercises, along with recommendations for next year’s events. The workshops will help ensure that training and exercise schedules are coordinated for the best use of resources and to reduce calendar conflicts. The planning workshops will be scheduled as part of the Regional Coordinator meetings. Workshops will be posted to the SEMA Training and Exercises webpage.
