As we all work toward the transition to NG911, attending these types of conferences will be extremely beneficial.
I encourage you to consider sending representatives to one of the three national NENA conferences that will be held in 2023 (NENA Conferences).
NOTE: Professional development opportunities for Public Safety Telecommunicators is an allowable use of 911 funds.
NENA NG91-1 Standards & Best Practices Conference
Learn, Collaborate, & Contribute!
#NENASBP (January 16-19, 2023 at the Hilton Clearwater in Clearwater, FL) is a conference unlike any other. It is an interactive, informative, attendee-driven event where you not only learn about the standards that are spurring the development and implementation of NG9-1-1 technology and operations best practices, but also create the guidelines, resources, and documents that enable NG services, systems, and PSAPs to reach their full potential.
With your peers from across the 9-1-1 universe, you’ll discuss and work to address the most pressing issues facing 9-1-1, including: recruitment, hiring, and retention; GIS and NG-data needs; location services and accuracy; culture; interoperability; telecommunicator SOPs; real-time text; transition planning; cybersecurity; multimedia messaging and accessibility; training; wellness and resiliency; the evolution of 9-1-1 center supervision and management; and more!
No other event provides you with the opportunity to shape the future of 9-1-1 and impact public safety for decades to come! Don’t miss your chance to be part of it!
