Jack Lindsay - Speaker
Topic: MAMEC Association and how it plays an important role in Canadian Emergency Management
Jack Lindsay is an Associate Professor and the chair for the Applied Disaster and Emergency Studies (ADES) department. He has 25 years of experience in emergency management as a practitioner, researcher and teacher. He has worked in Canada and New Zealand at the local, provincial and federal government levels.
Emergency Management is in the midst of a transformation. This presentation will explore how establishing of MAMEC fits into the larger process of emergency management becoming a profession and its place in the context of Canada’s experience so far.
It is important for MAMEC members to consider how, as an association, it will address issues such as qualifications, a code of ethics, or its relationship to other associations. These are just part of a range of similar topics that arise when individual practitioners begin to work together as a professional association. MAMEC has an opportunity and an obligation to consider how it will contribute to the growth of emergency management in Manitoba.
