The EIIP Virtual Forum celebrated its second anniversary of online interaction and live chats with a special online event. Birthday cards and well wishes from supporters were shared via the Forum Web site. Expressions of appreciation were extended to the paid staff, interns, Partners, and speakers for the year. Party participants were asked to pledge their participation for the coming year and all presenters and participants were commended for bravely attempting and conquering this means of communications.

To begin the third year in the Virtual Forum, messages were shared with the audience from Dennis Mileti, Kay Goss, Lacy Suiter, and Senator Fred Thompson. After the good information and kind words by the speakers, Amy Sebring led the party-goers in a number of games related to the large number of acronyms used in the emergency management business. The second anniversary/birthday party of the EIIP Virtual Forum was both informative and fun.


The EIIP could not have had such a successful year without the contribution of time and effort donated by the individuals listed below. For almost every one of them, this was a new, and hopefully enjoyable, experience and took a willingness to master an unfamiliar skill. We are most grateful for their efforts. Our many thanks.EIIP
