Here is a list of HERC’s standing meetings. For information on specific meeting times and locations, contact the HERC Coordinator , or click here [link to meeting date/location list document]
Board of Directors Meeting:
The HERC Board of Directors is responsible for the overall strategies and goals of the coalition. Board meetings usually consist of updates on the current state and federal guidelines, budget updates, and decisions on actions and expenditures. Board meetings are usually combined with general members meetings, which include information-sharing regarding on-going preparedness activities of various members throughout the region.
The HERC Board of Directors currently meets in-person once a month, on the 4th Tuesday afternoon of each month from 1 to 3 PM (except in November/December, which is a combined meeting).
Exercise Design Committee:
The Exercise Design Committee serves to provide a forum to discuss and coordinate exercises and drills that involve the entire HERC region, or a substantial portion of the HERC membership. If HERC is directly involved in an exercise/drill, the Exercise Design Committee will determine the goals and objectives of the coalition for the event. Members of the Exercise Design Committee will often provide technical assistance in the planning and execution of exercises and drills.
The Exercise Design Committee currently meets in-person or virtually once a month. Meetings are usually on the 4th Friday of the month, from 9 to 11 AM.
Funding Request Review Committee:
The Funding Request Review Committee serves primarily to review and provide recommendations to the Board of Directors on funding requests submitted to the HERC. The committee reviews each submitted funding application and discusses its consistency with HERC policies, mission, and vision. The committee provides a summary of the discussion, which includes a recommendation to the Board on whether to approve or reject the application. The committee notes are then sent with the application when it is forwarded to the Board.
The Funding Request Review Committee currently meets in-person or virtually once a month. Committee meetings are generally on the 4th Friday of the month from 11 AM to 12 PM (immediately following the Exercise Design Committee meeting).
