SC APCO Spring Conference
The Annual South Carolina APCO spring conference is an educational and networking event in South Carolina for public safety communications professionals. This year we are so excited to have NENA coming on board to partner in this event! The APCO/NENA boards have met and all agree we are stronger together in our efforts to offer the best training for our membership. We are membership driven and we are dedicated to making things better throughout our state in our training endeavors. We want to see South Carolina at the top of the list in training efforts for our telecommunicators. Offering this spring conference is one of the ways we can do that. This year the conference is being held April 18-19 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton, Greystone in Columbia.

Last year nearly 300 public safety communications professionals attended the conference to explore critical and timely issues affecting the 9-1-1 industry.
The Conference Committee is working hard to put together an agenda that will provide something for everyone involved in Public Safety Communications.
The 2017 Annual Conference will be October 16-20th in Myrtle Beach. More information coming soon.
Active Shooter Training
Maureen Will, Director of the Emergency Communications Center in Newtown, Connecticut spoke at the SC APCO/NENA fall conference in October 2013 sharing details of the tragedy of Sandy Hook.
After the presentation, Maureen challenged the SC APCO/NENA Boards to make Active Shooter Training available for all 911 communication centers in SC. We accepted the challenge and are offering: The Active Shooter Class for 911 Communications Centers.
The Member and Chapter Services Committee (MCSC) supports the membership at the chapter level by building relationships with chapter leaders. Each MCSC member is assigned to represent Chapters and throughout the year they maintain information flow with the chapter leaders. We are here to keep APCO members informed of association policies, governance guidelines, and other APCO programs. Just as important, we push issues from the local level to the APCO leadership level. We work for the people and strive to make sure you receive all that you can from your APCO membership.
