Who We Are

VIEP Conference Society

​The acronym VIEP, in the Society's name, stands for Vancouver Island Emergency Preparedness. 

The VIEP Conference Society was established in 2008 to support Vancouver Island and neighbouring islands host a biennial conference for emergency preparedness volunteers, community groups, non-profit organizations and professionals. Over the years, the role of the Conference Society has expanded and in addition to supporting the conference, the organization encourages and supports local emergency preparedness workshops and administrates a bursary and an award. 

 

The conference, which is organized by the Conference Committee,  provides participants with emergency preparedness learning opportunities in the areas--also known as pillars--of emergency mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. The work of the Committee is governed by an eight-member Board of Directors, which provides direction and oversight.
