The 9-1-1 Goes to Washington Conference will be held in in Washington, DC from 3/17/2013 - 3/20/2013.

9-1-1 Goes to Washington brings together hundreds of 9-1-1 professionals from around the country with policy leaders in our nation's capital to explore and discuss today's most pressing 9-1-1 and emergency communications issues. 9-1-1 Goes to Washington is the only event where you can learn about the policy challenges facing public safety and take immediate action to address them through dialog with your elected and appointed officials.

With the ushering in of a new Congress, 2013 offers a significant opportunity for 9-1-1 professionals to shape the nation's emergency communications policy agenda. In order to address the needs of today's 9-1-1 system while laying the regulatory and legislative groundwork for Next Generation systems, public safety professionals must both understand today's 9-1-1 policy landscape and take an active role in educating policymakers and enlisting them as allies. At 9-1-1 Goes to Washington, you will do both.
