The Winter Programme of events and opportunities for Emergency Planning Society members has been released. Members who would like to take part and who require joining details should contact info@the-eps.org for further information.

The programme includes our fortnightly Resilience Huddles which are open only to members and provide a safe space where resilience professionals can share learning, experiences and network with colleagues. These are held virtually every second Wednesday.

The new members inductions are an ideal opportunity for new members to find out more about what the EPS can offer. They are open to all members who have joined the EPS in 2020 and will be informal, but informative events, and will take place via Zoom. They are hosted by a member of the Board of Directors of the EPS and will cover a wide range of topics, including the history of the EPS, how to use our website, CPD, events and how you can get involved in the work of the EPS.
