SUMMARY

From 17-18 November 2010, the Consortium for Homeland Defense and Security in America - consisting of the United States Army War College's Center for Strategic Leadership, George Washington University's Homeland Security Policy Institute, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and the Heritage Foundation - held its annual symposium to address the challenges of achieving Unity of Effort in preparing for and responding to catastrophic events.

This paper highlights initiatives and points to new directions that must be taken to prepare our citizenry and respond to their needs in time of severe crises.
