There is still time to submit your proposal to speak at APCO 2018. Take some time and ask yourself:

  • Are you a public safety communications industry leader?
  • Do you have a unique solution you want to share?
  • Have you recently implemented an innovative idea?
If the answer is yes to any of those questions, you should be part of APCO 2018's educational program.
