President’s Welcome

It is with great honor that I have been selected to serve as President of the South Carolina Emergency Management Association

The members of our association are dedicated public servants who have faced numerous disasters and emergency situations over the past several years and continue to excel in this dynamic profession. Composed of a diverse group of emergency management professionals from various disciplines, locations, and backgrounds, our association is a true representation of what our great state has to offer. 
As our association continues to grow, it is important that we remember our core values that serve as the foundation on which this association was built. Excellence in all that we do; progressiveness within the profession; integrity in our duties; collaboration with our partners and stakeholders; and a commitment to the safety of those that we serve.  
I encourage our members to engage in the activities that your association offers, build relationships with colleagues, and help grow SCEMA for the betterment of emergency management in the Palmetto State. Again, it is an honor to lead this association while being surrounded by so many talented emergency management professionals. If at any time you have any recommendations or feedback please contact me at 
Brandon Ellis, President 
South Carolina Emergency Management Association
