Without the support of our many generous Vendor members, AZ-APCO/NENA's chapter would not be able to provide the level of training, support and fun that we do. Please take a moment to visit their page, and show THEM some support as well.
They are Located under AGENCIES-VENDORS on the Menu, but simply clicking the image to the right will take you right there.
Also- Clicking on any of the LOGOS will take you to their company pages where you can find a wealth of information.
As many of you know, our long relationship with the city of Tempe who hosted our az-acpo-nena list serv for free is coming to an end on November 1st. The executive board of the Arizona APCO/NENA chapter would like to thank the city of Tempe and in particular Karen Allen for the years of generous benefit they have provided to our organization.
We have taken steps to establish our own presence on our web hosting platform under the az-apco-nena.org domain and starting November 1st, 2013, we will fully transition to the new method of distributing information.
If you would like to provide some useful information for the membership, you can email the listserv moderator at firstname.lastname@example.org. (We didn't say it had to be tough) and the moderator will get your content up and out to the membership.
When you hit 'reply to' it goes to email@example.com (Again the KISS principle at work).
We hope we can find ways to make this even more useful to us than it has been in the past.
