May Program: Crisis Communication with Craig Fugate
- Location: GoToWebinar
- RSVP Deadline: May 20
The Capital Chapter is excited to welcome Craig Fugate as our May program speaker!
How can we plan for (and communicate through) the unexpected? How should we plan to work with our audiences as well as local, state, and federal organizations? Craig Fugate will offer guidance informed by his deep experience working with large-scale, high-stakes crises. The webinar will be moderated by Alyson Lundell, APR, CPRC, our FPRA State President and Senior Director of PR at Universal Orlando Resort.
Fugate is the former administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. As Florida Director for the Emergency Management Division, he oversaw the “Big 4 of ’04” and as the Administrator for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, he organized recovery efforts for a record of 87 disasters in 2011.
Fugate served as President Barack Obama’s FEMA Administrator from May 2009 to January 2017.
He led FEMA through multiple record-breaking disaster years and oversaw the Federal Government’s response to major events such as the Joplin and Moore Tornadoes, Hurricane Sandy, Hurricane Matthew, and the 2016 Louisiana flooding.
Fugate set a clear and compelling vision, mission, and priorities for FEMA and relentlessly drove the Agency to achieve better outcomes for survivors.
FEMA’s effectiveness in dealing with more than 500 Presidentially-declared major disasters and emergencies under Fugate’s leadership restored the faith of the American people in the Federal Government’s ability to respond to disasters.
Prior to his tenure at FEMA, Fugate was widely praised for his management, under Governor Jeb Bush, of the devastating effects of the 2004 and 2005 Florida hurricane seasons (Charley, Frances, Ivan, Jeanne, Dennis, Katrina, and Wilma).
He currently serves as Chief Emergency Management Officer at One Concern and has been hired as senior advisor for the Restore Economic Strength through Employment and Tourism (RESET) Task Force created by a coalition of Florida business associations.
