The Private Sector Emergency Management Association (PSEMA) was founded to promote and support a completely integrated preparedness, risk reduction, and response reality between businesses, industry stakeholders, nongovernmental organizations, and public sector agencies across the United States.

We provide support to companies, industries, and organizations to assist in their emergency management planning and preparation before, during, and after times of major disruption or disaster, providing business resilience education, raising awareness of limitations impacting business, and rapidly identifying and marshaling available resources to bolster business continuity and community recovery.

We facilitate business-to-business conversations and coordination with ongoing homeland security and emergency management realities. We coordinate cross-sector communication so that business can help business get back to work whenever and wherever a disaster strikes. And, as a conduit between the private sector and government agencies, we provide a professional forum for collaboration, communication, and engagement to prevent or lessen any negative effects when major emergencies and disasters occur.

PSEMA is a 501(c)(6) organization and is incorporated in the State of Texas.


Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is comprised of the Founders, Members of the Executive Committee, the Chairs and Co-Chairs for the Industry Committees and members of the Advisory Board.

PSEMA will elect the first Executive Committee in early 2023 at the Inaugural Symposium. As outlined in the PSEMA Policies and Procedures Manual, a Nominating Committee consisting of at least three members will be appointed to review nominations. The Nominating Committee will present a recommended slate of officers for the Executive Committee and Board of Directors for the upcoming year at the Annual Meeting to be voted on by the membership.

PSEMA members interested in serving on the Executive Committee or Board of Directors should send an email to [email protected]. Additional information on the process will be announced soon.

Executive Committee

The Executive Committee directs the work of the Association. Its members include the President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, and immediate Past President.
