"Very good sum up of the POEM. Can someone please get back to me regarding approaching Public Safety Canada and other Canadian groups for endorsement?"
University of Toronto
[Note: forwarded question to presenters.-ajs]
"Gained new insights into the Principles of Emergency Management. I was not previously aware of publication of those principles."
City of Sherwood, OR
"Great topic once again. Appreciate."
Navy Medicine West
"One of my students from Virginia Commonwealth University took part as did I. My student holds a significant position in the EM field. He questioned the need for the POEM project before the presentation. After the presentation and the Q&A session, he told me he had changed his mind and now realizes why it is important. Other students in the same course will be reading the transcript and commenting on it. The course is on private sector issues in preparedness and security. They already have read some other transcripts, one by Andrew Howell of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and one on certification issues. Thans so much, Avagene and Amy, for the rich educational resource that you have created and that you continue to maintain in EIIP, the Virtual Forums, the website, and the archives."
"Enjoyed the session. Wayne Blanchard's comments were especially useful because they identified work to be done and further actions to be taken. Mike Selves brought an interesting perspective to the problems of getting principles of EM adopted."

"Sorry if I might be seeming negative about this session. How unfortunate that the Question and Answer session couldn't be published. Mike Selves' responses were slow ... maybe Mike doesn't use a keyboard regularly. That's unfortunate, as Mike is a good guy, one-on-one. Overall I was disappointed with this forum."
"As a Masters student in EM, I am a newcomer to reading the forum, but find it extremely informative. Sharing information, more particularly current issues and evolutions in the profession in this forum add to knowledge of those entering the field. For me, and quite possibly other students of the field, the question and answers portion is a very unique look at the experts in our arena. It allows more detail and knowledge transfer than that of the more crafted presentations portion. Many insights and not-so-well-known facts are gleaned from this portion of the forum. Curious that the amount of sharing of ideas was hindered by the answers not being made available. An opportunity is currently not there to gain more guiding knowledge from the guest who has much experience to share."
Michael D. Selves, a native of Chase County, Kansas, recently retired from his position as Director of the Johnson County Department of Emergency Management
& Homeland Security in Olathe, Kansas. Johnson County is the largest
county in the state with a population in excess of 470,000. It is the
major suburban area of metropolitan Kansas City.
Mike has completed the Management Excellence Program (M.E.P.) at the University
of Virginia's Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service in Charlottesville,
Virginia. He is a member of IAEM, KEMA, the American Society of Professional
Emergency Planners, and the Kansas City Metropolitan Emergency Managers Committee.
He has been active in the National Assn. of Counties (NACo) and serves as Past President
of IAEM. He is a member of the Emergency Management Roundtable, and originally sparked the discussion which ultimately led to the development of the Principles of Emergency Management.
