Brownie gets $10K for speaking at disaster conference

Posted By on Mon, Aug 31, 2009 at 1:25 AM

As we wrap up a weekend of remembering the hurricane and the federal floods, Michael Brown is cashing in on his disaster expertise...

On the fourth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals is holding its convention, featuring . . . Michael Brown, the FEMA director forced out of his job for his weak response to the hurricane.

"There are a lot of lessons learned — whether he did them right or wrong — that our people need to hear," said Cedric Calhoun, group's executive director.

Brown is getting $10,000 for his appearance at the three-day San Diego convention that begins Sunday, and Calhoun expects some "yelling and screaming."

Whole story here. Heckuva job, Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals.
