Annual NEPM Meeting

The purpose of the annual National Earthquake Program Managers (NEPM) meeting is to provide information sharing and capacity building opportunities to state, federal, non-profit, and private sector members of the program. The 2022 NEPM meeting will be held March 29-31, 2022 in Memphis, Tennessee at the Central Station Hotel. The meeting will provide participants with a unique opportunity to collaborate, share best practices, and build upon the 2021 virtual NEPM Meeting.

In addition to being the home of the blues and birthplace of rock n’ roll (and some of the world’s best barbecue), Memphis has numerous earthquake mitigation sites of interest. These include historical sites such as the National Civil Rights Museum, I-40 bridge over the Mississippi River, AutoZone World Headquarters, Bass Pro Shops at the Memphis Pyramid, the FedEx Forum, and Memphis, Light, Gas, & Water facilities. An organized field trip will be held for meeting participants to learn about how these facilities and infrastructure have been built or retrofit to withstand earthquake shaking.

More information, including meeting registration, draft agendas, and other meeting-related details will be provided below as the meeting draws closer.
