NEMA is very pleased to unveil a new logo for the Emergency Management Assistance Compact!  The new logo retains the iconic image of the handshake that represents states helping states, people helping people, yet has a fresh new look.  As EMAC continues to evolve it’s important that its brand does so as well.  We hope that you like the new logo as much as we do!  Thanks to the NEMA EMAC Committee and the EMAC Executive Task Force for their assistance in selecting the new image. 
 
Please remember that the EMAC logo is trademarked and its use prohibited except through express written permission of NEMA.
