REGISTRATION NOW OPEN FOR THE INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE SYMPOSIUM – VISIT WWW.IHAS2012.COM
 
Tomás P Regalado, the Mayor of Miami, has pledged his support for the International Humanitarian Assistance Symposium 2012, a two day symposium that will enhance industry response to emergencies and disasters, ensuring those involved in an unforeseen tragedy are given the support they need.
 
“We endorse the work of the Family Assistance Foundation and believe our city is the perfect location for this symposium, with many of the organizations affected by these important issues calling Miami home. We are proud to be an official supporter of the International Humanitarian Assistance Symposium 2012 and you may count on us for whatever support you may need.”  Said Mayor Tomás P Regalado, City of Miami, in a letter to The Family Assistance Foundation and Intercruises Shoreside & Port Services, the organizers of IHAS 2012. 
 
The cruise industry has also recognized the importance of IHAS 2012, with a number of cruise lines and cruise organizations showing their support for the 2012 symposium. 
 
“We are proud to sponsor this symposium which will help cruise ports learn what to do in the event of an unforeseen tragedy. While we can’t always know when an emergency or disaster will occur, we should always be prepared to react if something happens,”said Tom Spina, Director of Cruise Operations, NYCruise.
 
The two day symposium will consist of a series of educational panels, practical workshops and experiences recounted first hand by disaster and accident survivors and responders. This includes a cruise specific panel discussion, with survivors, responders and cruise line representatives discussing their involvement in responding to an emergency.
 
Registration is now open for the International Humanitarian Assistance Symposium at www.ihas2012.com, with an early bird offer meaning the full conference and social program can be attended for as little as $250, or $199 for Family Assistance Foundation members.
