2020 PSCS Radio Summit
PLEASE NOTE: In an abundance of caution and for the protection and safety of our highly valued and loyal participants and sponsors, we regret to inform you that the 2020 Public Safety Radio Summit scheduled for May 6th & 7th has been cancelled. With the Summit scheduled just a short 7-weeks out and the uncertainty of what the future holds during this state of emergency, the Summit Planning Committee made the tough decision this morning to cancel.
The Emery Reynolds Lifetime Achievement Award, the Career Achievement and the Event Achievement Awards will be presented to the award winner(s) at a later date when it becomes safe to congregate for a meeting.
We are working through the process for refunds for paid registrations. More will follow on that in a later communication.
We greatly apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we hope to see you at the 2021 Summit!
