I am an emergency manager and a member of the Central Massachusetts Homeland Security Advisory Council so the self-improvement concept that lies behind these sessions is of critical importance. It is extremely frustrating to see so few posts being anywhere near on the current topic of how we can better involve NGOs, non-federal, and citizen groups in the defense of our homeland. When I look back at the web-set I notice that the specific topic for this particular session is not spelled out. Obviously a huge number of people want to take this opportunity to layout their particular pet-peeve in front of the federal government - and they need a communication path to do that - but we need to aggressively attack the real problems that have been assigned to DHS and do it in small pieces like this one - how to involve non-federal teams in support of the DHS charter.
