Goal 1 of FEMA’s strategic plan, released in March 2018, is to build a culture of preparedness. Financial literacy is a key component of Goal 1. It is crucial for FEMA to partner with those who are already working daily with Americans on this issue. Our message is best heard when we collaborate with subject matter experts, such as CFP professionals and financial planning leaders, to serve as force multipliers. In this session, our aim is to strengthen our relationships with financial preparedness professionals to increase the nation’s disaster preparedness awareness and resiliency.
