This year’s Conference Text (you’ll get it at the door for much cheaper!!!!) is already available100+ pages 8.5×11,   17 chapters, 7 authors.   As much practical information as we could get people to write — some great stuff in there!


IF YOU WANTED TO DO A TALK & GOT IGNORED…. SPEAK UP NOW BECAUSE WE TRY TO ACCOMMODATE EVERY POSSIBLE LEADER!!!!  The only reason we’re doing this Conference…is no one else seemed to be bringing hams together to practice emergency communications, so jump right in and TEACH!!!  Or–  start planning what you can teach NEXT YEAR!!  [It is surprising how few offers we got when we asked for instructors….]   What we ask of all lecturers each year is an outline, or written version of what they want to go over, early enough that we can get it into print — but if you have something burning you want to teach RIGHT NOW give me a note & let’s plan!    Having a written text means leaders can take it BACK TO THEIR HOME GROUPS with many of the details written…..

If you know other leaders — please pass the info along — we have increasing participation by the County professional emergency communicators in this Conference — one hopes to chair a session and bring their mobile Tower to assist a team in the full scale exercise — if your group has never done a deployment exercise with injects & tasks — THIS MIGHT BE A GREAT OPPORTUNITY for  your group……change of pace

Feel free to forward—or send us advice! “In a multitude of counselors is success
