2017 APCO Western Regional Conference

In just a few short weeks, the 2017 APCO Western Regional Conference, hosted by the CPRA Chapter of APCO International will kick off at the Ontario Convention Center in Ontario, California, on April 10-13, 2017. We have a great lineup of presenters and exhibitors. Check the Conference website at APCOWRC2017.ORG to view our schedule of amazing training sessions, Supersessions, Keynote Speakers, and to register to attend. While there, peek at our list of sponsors and exhibitors to visit in the exhibit hall.

If you have never been able to attend an APCO Regional Conference before, they are truly valuable to building the experience and knowledge of public safety professionals. This year is no exception, and with the inclusion of POST credits for some of the sessions, it is now even more worthwhile for those working in California. Get with your training coordinator or powers that be and point out the value of the classes that catch your interest. Registration is now open online and is also available on site during the conference.  Can’t spend a full week; not to worry – there are also Single Day Passes and even free Exhibits Only Passes available.

Our chapter is still looking for volunteers to help with this great event.  Did you know that volunteering for only four (4) hours yields a free Day Pass to the conference? Many of the volunteer opportunities are acting as a liaison between a presenter and the event staff.  Volunteer for sessions that interest you and you’re not missing a thing.

Also, not to be missed is our technical awards presentation for IT Technologist, RF Technologist, and RF Engineer on Wednesday, April 12th at 1000 hours in the convention center. Frequency Coordination will follow the presentation of the awards to some very deserving professionals.  And, on Thursday evening April 13th, attend the 29th Annual Telecommunicator Awards Banquet honoring our 9-1-1 Professionals, including the awards for Team, Supervisor, and Telecommunicator of the Year.

The CPRA Chapter of APCO International looks forward to seeing you at the 2017 APCO WRC!
