SNEAK PEEK | The emergency landing of US Airways flight 1549 will be one of the case studies reviewed by Keynote speaker Jim Stanton from WWP and Associates. The incident provides a crisis response perspective from the airline as well as a look at multi-agency interoperability during an emergency.


There are many beautiful locations to stay in Ottawa. The Lord Elgin Hotel is a short, but lovely walk, away from our conference location and has offered our participants a special rate of $229 beginning June 2 if you wish to come to Ottawa early or extend your stay.
