Voting begins July 6, 2014
Message from Cheryl Greathouse:
My name is Cheryl J. Greathouse and I am running for 2nd Vice President of APCO in 2014. I have been an active and involved member of APCO since 1990 and served at the Association level on committees as both a member and chair, and as chair of a special task force, as a Group Leader (responsible for oversight of multiple committees), as a contributing writer of national training standards, as a regular conference presenter, and I have also testified before the Federal Communications Commission on behalf of APCO. I have twice been awarded the APCO International President’s Award, am an APCO Senior and APCO Life Member, and this year, achieved my APCO Registered Public-Safety Leader credential.
I humbly ask for your support and vote during the election process which begins on July 6, 2014. In the meantime, if you have any questions about my experience, credentials or vision for the Association, please feel free to contact me at 478-993-4637 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is my vision for APCO International to improve the professional development opportunities for 9-1-1 emergency communications professionals in all positions within a public safety answer point (PSAP) and to pursue advancement and professional recognition for the men and women who serve our citizens and public safety responders in such a dedicated and selfless manner.
