We (APCO-MS Board members) have the pleasure of inviting you to participate in the “APCO-MS 2019 Annual Emergency Telecommunicator Training Conference.

Will take place, May 5-8, 2019 in Starkville MS. The Conference will be held at “The Mill” Mississippi State University.

Hours of the training class start Monday at 8am and end Wednesday at 2pm. There will be a pre conference training session (Sunday afternoon May 5th @ 430 pm. The training will address  Agency Reimbursements, BETST certifications requirements and have a question/answers period with Diane Berry  and Marie McCorry (BETST Staff).

The APCP-MS Training Conference has become one of the most respected annual gathering in the state of Mississippi. Emergency Communications Personnel can learn, network, get vendor information give feedback and still have fun. You get to see what is new in the market of our industry and give feedback to vendors as to what you would like to see in the future markets or improvement to what is already on the market.

We want you and your co-workers to be better prepared for the challenges you will face. So let us know what type of training you would like to see added to the conference itinerary. If we cant get it added for the current year we will strive to make it happen for a future conference.

Our goal is for you and your co-workers to be better prepared for the challenges you will face. We value your thoughts, comments and support of our efforts to educate, recognize and support Mississippi Emergency Services Telecommunicators. Were here and were listening. We invite speakers that are in the top of the 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. 

Our theme for 2019 is “Murder Mystery”. Stay tuned to the web site for updates of the “Who done it?” dress attire…. I believe it might be a “Masquerade.”

To register and find additional information about the conference please keep a eye on the APCO-MS Chapter  website at apco-ms.org. We look forward to seeing you at the conference.

Don’t forget to nominate someone  (Emergency Telecommunicator that works in the state of MS,) for the Larry Lindsey Award, Dispatcher of the year Award. You can find the submission form rules and guidelines on the web site, apco-ms.org.
