Dear 2020 Michigan Interoperable Communications Conference Attendee,
On behalf of the Michigan’s Public Safety Communications System of the Department of Technology, Management and Budget, in partnership with Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division of the Michigan State Police, we want to thank you for attending the 10th Annual Michigan’s Statewide Interoperable Communications Conference.
We hope that you found the conference informative and worthwhile. The primary goal of this conference was to bring together local, state, federal, tribal, and private public safety communications experts and emergency response personnel.
We believe that our diverse and dynamic group of speakers and panelists provided in-depth insight, focused education, and information about the advantages of interoperability and relationships among system partners. You may access speaker presentations that were able to be shared with the conference attendees at www.michigan.gov/miinterop.
Your presence helped to make this event a great success and your enthusiasm and positive spirit helped make our time together both productive and fun. Please take a moment to fill out the conference evaluation on MI-TRAIN and download your certificate.
Thank you again for attending and we look forward to seeing you at next year’s conference scheduled for February 9-12, 2021 in Traverse City, Michigan.
