Region VIII: Regional Advisory Council

Main Content

Public Records and Resources

Post-Katrina legislation required FEMA Regional Administrators to establish Regional Advisory Councils to advise them on emergency management issues specific to their Regions. Region VIII set up its Regional Advisory Council in April 2007, and brought the charter members together for their first meeting on June 12, 2007.

Currently the Region VIII Regional Advisory Council has 14 members, including the Chair, Vice Chair and 2nd Vice Chair. The Council has a diverse membership including emergency management directors and homeland security advisors from 6 States, representatives of two tribal nations, local fire chiefs, police chiefs, and county emergency managers.

The Council expects to meet at least twice annually, and welcomes input from interested stakeholders and the public. Below you’ll find information related to the Region VIII Regional Advisory Council's work to date, as well as public records from its meetings. Region VIII will post notices of future meetings here at least 15 calendar days in advance. Individuals who wish to offer comments or topics for the Council members are welcome to email them to Donovan.Puffer@dhs.gov.

The Region VIII RAC will conduct its next meeting on December 15, 2010 via teleconference. A copy of the meeting agenda is available below for public review.
