City Emergency Management Coordinator, Dorothy Miller, selected as University of Houston Fellow

The BTI (Borders, Trade and Immigration) Institute at the University of Houston hosted its first orientation for BTI Fellows on Wednesday, May 10, in Houston, and one of Round Rock’s own was in attendance!

Dorothy Miller, the City of Round Rock’s Emergency Management Coordinator, was recently selected to participate as a member of this distinguished group.

(L-R) First Row: Dorothy Miller, Director Ioannis Kakadiaris, Jennifer Johnstone, Patricia DeGennaro; Second Row: Todd Shewmake, Andrew Mellon, Henry Sienkiewicz, Richard Wagner, Jr., Roy Sikes, Jaeson Hones, Steve Wood, Joel Aud, and Anthony Mottola

BTI Fellows are highly experienced and eminently qualified subject matter experts that serve to significantly expand the capabilities and expertise of the Institute’s faculty and staff. These BTI Fellows provide expertise in a wide variety of topic areas working from locations throughout the United States – addressing homeland security issues pertaining to our Northern and Southern borders, coastal regions, territories, and critical infrastructure.

In the future, these BTI Fellows will be engaged, as needed, to work on BTI Institute initiatives. The Fellows serve in part-time positions, where individuals are asked to perform a wide spectrum of functions and projects.  These include such tasks as:

  • “Red Team” activities for proposed plans and initiatives
  • Consultation in their subject areas of expertise
  • Critical review of concepts and proposals
  • Representation of the BTI Institute at meetings and conferences
  • Exercise planning, facilitation, and evaluation in accordance with the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP)
  • Special projects

Congrats to Dorothy on this awesome accomplishment!
