Cooperating Technical Partners Recognition Program Nominations Now Open

Dec 17, 2018 | News & Views

The
nomination period for the 3rd Annual CTP Recognition Program will be
open until Jan. 10, 2019. The CTP Program encourages CTP Stakeholders (CTPs,
FEMA staff and contractors) to nominate CTPs that clearly demonstrate
operational best practices at any stage of a Risk MAP project and who help
communities get involved in mitigation action. A CTP cannot nominate itself, but
CTPs may by nominated by other CTP stakeholder. If you know of a CTP that
deserves to be recognized, please download the nomination form and process here.

The CTP Recognition Program process includes
the following steps:

Nomination
Period (Oct. 24, 2018 – Jan. 10, 2019): CTPs can promote their
organization through
the CTP Collaboration Monthly and other newsletters (as well as direct
contact with their FEMA regional lead). CTPs and FEMA staff can nominate
their peers for the CTP Recognition Program.

FEMA
Review and Selection (February – March 2019): FEMA must review each nominee and
determine if they are a viable candidate. Top-selected CTP nominees will
be part of the final vote in April 2019 during the Community of Practice
(CoP) General Meeting.
