A message from our APCO-MS President
We (APCO-MS Board members) have the pleasure of inviting you to participate in the “APCO-MS 2020 Annual Emergency Telecommunicator Training Conference” which will take place, April 20-22, 2020 in Biloxi Mississippi.
The conference will be held at the Gruich Community Center located at 591 Howard Avenue, Biloxi MS 39530.
Hours of the training classes start Monday at 8AM and end Wednesday at 2PM. There will be a pre-conference training session (Sunday afternoon April 19th) on Agency Reimbursements, BETST certifications question/answers with Dianne Berry and Marie McCorry (BETST).
Certificates will be available at the completion of the conference.
The APCO-MS Training Conference has become one of the most important annual gathering in the state of Mississippi. Emergency Dispatch Personnel can learn, network and meet with vendors. You get to see what is new in the market and give feedback to what you would like to see in future markets as in training and tools of the trade.
We want you and your co-workers to be better prepared for the challenges of your chosen career. So let us know what type of training you would like to see added to the conference itinerary. If we can’t get it added for the current year we will strive to make it happen for a future conference. We value your thoughts, comments and support of our efforts to educate, recognize and support Mississippi Emergency Services Telecommunicators. We’re here and we’re listening.
We invite speakers that are in the top of their field, to give you the best and most updated information on any given topic. If you know of someone that fits this description, we would love to hear from you/them.
Our theme is “Beach” and yes you can dress down for Monday night’s Beach Bash (Vendor Night).
We look forward to seeing you at the conference.
Don’t forget to nominate someone (Emergency Telecommunicator that works in the state of Mississippi) for the “Larry Lindsey Award” (Telecommunicator of the Year). You can find the submission form, rules and guidelines on our website at http://apco-ms.org
Information for the “Alan Gray” scholarship can also be found on our website http://apco-ms.org
Both of these are presented at the annual conference.
