Event Description

NCEM and NCORR Executive Director Michael A. Sprayberry Retirement (NC-DIR-RET-21)

NCEM and NCORR Executive Director Michael A. Sprayberry is retiring effective 1 August after 42 years of state service. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 response, plans to send off Director Sprayberry are going to be slightly modified.

We will hold a scaled down official retirement ceremony at the Joint Force Headquarters Auditorium on Wednesday 28 July beginning at 1000 hours. Immediately following the ceremony, a reception will be held in the State Emergency Operations Center Situation Room until 1600 hours. The reception will be open for individuals to drop in and out as needed.

The official ceremony will be targeted towards federal partners, state partners, and internal NCEM and NCORR personnel.

All individuals interested in attending the retirement ceremony must register utilizing TERMS. All personnel will be waitlisted initially and approved as any capacity limits allow.

If you are interested in making a presentation as a part of the retirement ceremony OR during the reception, please email Amanda Rutherford ( no later than 1700 hours on 1 July 2021. Please note at that time your preference of presentation at ceremony, at reception, or no preference.

We will have engagements with each of our three Field Branches in June to allow Director Sprayberry to speak directly to our local partners and pass along his thanks for the support over the years. More information on those dates and times will be forthcoming.
