Be sure to attend the September general meeting of the New York Young Republican Club tonight at the Union League, 38 East 37th Street, corner of Park & 37th.

We are hosting a panel on Emergency Preparedness Five Years After September 11th.

Panelists will include Frank Tabert, Assistant Director, New York State Department of Homeland Security; Avi Bell, visiting law professor at Fordham University; and Philip Caracci, Republican District Leader and survivor of the World Trade Center attack.

The panelists will discuss the state of emergency preparedness in New York City and will take questions from the club. Mr. Tabert, Assistant Director of the New York State Office of Homeland Security, oversees state agency, public authority and select private sector procedures for deterring, preventing and responding to terrorist acts or threats. He also works developing and implementing statewide counterterrorism training programs; and specializing in air, rail, and seaport security programs and critical infrastructure issues. Before joining the department, Mr. Tabert spent 25 years working in airport and transportation law enforcement.

Professor Bell is a law professor at the Bar Ilan University Faculty of Law in Ramat Gan, Israel (a suburb of Tel Aviv) and a Visiting Professor at Fordham University Law School. His fields of expertise are administrative law (including anti-terror law), international law (especially the laws of war), and property. He is also a staff sergeant in a reserve infantry unit of the Israel Defense Forces, and was called up for active duty in Lebanon this summer.

Philip Caracci is a District Leader in the 74th Assembly District. He has been involved in the Republican party in New York City for nearly 20 years and has served on the executive committees of several local clubs including the TR Group and Gramercy Park Republican Club.

The meeting at the Union League starts at 7:00pm sharp. As always, business attire required. Please check your coat at the door and turn off your cell phone.

Look forward to seeing you there.
