As a not-for-profit corporation, the Governor’s Hurricane Conference® strives to maintain reasonable registration fees that afford the maximum participation of all organizations, large and small. With that philosophy, it would not be possible for the GHC to provide all of the amenities that attendees enjoy, without assistance. Therefore, we seek financial contributions from the business community in order to provide refreshment breaks and other items and events.

Likewise, we rely heavily on the assistance of volunteers to prepare for and execute the conference. The four sponsoring agencies (Florida Division of Emergency Management, American Red Cross, Florida Emergency Preparedness Association and the National Weather Service) dedicate extensive human and other resources to all aspects of the conference. Additionally, other agencies and organizations provide staff and services that help make the GHC a success. It is with sincere appreciation that we recognize all of these agencies.
