WINNIPEG, Canada — Representatives from the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) Int’l, APCO Canada, British APCO and APCO Australasia (APCO Partners) signed a charter that demonstrates their continuing commitment to the APCO Global Alliance. The signing took place in conjunction with the APCO Canada Conference, held here on Nov. 4.
The APCO Global Alliance was originally formed in 2006 during which time the APCO Partners executed a Charter that would exist for an initial term of five years. By signing the new charter, the partners extended the governance arrangements for the APCO Global Alliance to function for a further term from Jan 1, 2013 to Sept. 30, 2015.
As part of the charter, the APCO partners prepared a corporate plan to guide the president’s council as the global alliance undertakes its core business of promoting excellence in the global development and use of public safety communications.
“APCO is honored to be part of this monumental venture to ensure public safety communications is a priority across the globe,” APCO Int’l President Terry Hall says.
