The fall symposium of the NCCIA was held at the National Defense University (Washington, DC) on 25th & 26th October 2005. The symposium bought together a diverse group of past NCCIA attendees and some new faces that included folks with direct experience of the impact of Hurricane Katrina (the most recent critical incident) and folks who are actively engaged with the possible next critical incident – a pandemic influenza episode.

A full report will be posted shortly but the experiences discussed at the symposium and the timeliness of some of the points raised by the symposium participants’ merit a quick initial report of the highlights.
