We will seek representatives of your agencies to serve as speakers for a variety of panels on topic issues, particularly designation of emergency personnel, transportation, and communications. Please designate a point of contact within your agency for our staff to work with as we finalize our agenda. Please let Heather Kehr know the name, telephone number, email address, and fax number for your point of contact. You may call Ms. Kehr at 202-606-2838 or email her at hfkehr@opm.gov.
