EMPA exists to lead and support the evolution of effective communication and community engagement before, during and after emergencies, by providing a network for all who practise and research in this sector. 


  • To benchmark the best media liaison and public affairs responses to disaster across Australasia and to share lessons learned by practitioners and researchers
  • To provide ample opportunity for discussion on topics of common concern to all practitioners so that ideas can be generated and solutions canvassed
  • To provide a common meeting ground for practitioners and researchers for discussions on various aspects of emergency response and action plans
  • To allow researchers to share their findings with practitioners and other researchers.
