Message from Fall Conference Committee Chair Melissa Blessing


We are happy to say we are back at The Grand in Ocean City again on October 11 and October 12, 2022 for the Mid-Eastern APCO Fall Training Symposium.


The training tracks are in place! On Tuesday, there will be a full day of training with sessions from Adam Timm of The Healthy Dispatcher on “The Power of Resilience: How to Beat Dispatcher Burnout” and “Sustaining a Customer Service Culture”. On Wednesday, there will be the Public Safety Communications Awards breakfast and then Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention. The day will end about 12:00.  


The cost of the symposium is $50 for APCO Members and $60 for Non-APCO Members.


On Tuesday, there will be a continental breakfast and box lunch and a free networking event/mixer at the hotel from 5:30pm to 7:00pm. At the networking event/mixer, there will be light refreshments, a cash bar, and lots of giveaways.  (Pre-registration is requested.) Wednesday morning will start with a hot buffet breakfast in conjunction with the Public Safety Communications Awards.
