The Missouri Public Safety Communications Conference Spring 2020 is POSTPONED until Fall

We have continued to monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation. In light of the current “stay a home order” that may extend and the continued fluidity of the situation, we have decided to move the MPSCC Spring 2020 conference dates out to the fall, September 13th – 16th, 2020 and it will move to the already scheduled fall location of University Plaza Hotel and Convention Center at 333 S. John Q. Hammons Pkwy, Springfield, MO 65806. 

We are thankful that Margaritaville Lake Resort of the Ozarks (Tan-Tar-A Resort) has been so accommodating and we are blessed to have already pre-booked the University Plaza Hotel for these fall dates.  University Plaza Hotel is currently working on the details and changes we need so that the commercial partner exhibiting space can still be offered at their location.  We are committed and will be offering as many of the same great classes as previously scheduled with over  60 + hours of CEU’s in September.

We will be working on moving all Speakers, Attendee, Commercial Partners and Sponsors registrations out to the new dates of September 13th – 16th, 2020. You will not need to re-register for the conference, however Margaritaville is doing a blanket cancellation on the rooms, so all hotel rooms made under our MPSCC Block will be cancelled automatically by the resort to save everyone time.  You should receive notification by email of this room cancellation. If you did not reserve your room under the conference block, you will need to contact them on your own to cancel.

Hotel room booking for the new conference in September will be open in mid-July and we will share the exact date and link to www.mpscc911.org and Facebook.com/mpscc911/ as soon as the link is ready and they are open to take reservations.  Rooms under the block will be open from Saturday, September 12th.

Commercial Partners:  If you have already committed for an exhibit booth, sponsorship, or non-exhibitor registration, we will be working out the details to move all of those registrations over for the new conference dates. If you have conflict or have questions about this change, please contact Matt Knight at #913-440-9199 or at mknight@sdrmaps.com or April Ford at #417-483-0132 or at aford@jasco.org.  

Speakers / Presenters:  Your registration is being moved over for the new dates, but Cheryl Konarski at CKonarsk@Joplinmo.org or Angie Stiefermann at astiefermann@jeffcitymo.org will be reaching out to reschedule speaking times and dates for the conference. If you have any conflicts, they will be able to assist you.  We are also happy to announce that our Keynote, Tim Eggebraaten will be with us in Springfield!

Attendees:  Your registration is being moved over to the new conference dates above. If for some reason you cannot attend the conference, you will be able to transfer registrations to another employee. If you need to make a change in attendees or you need to make other modifications to your registration, please contact April Ford by email aford@jasco.org

Registration will be re-opened next week with the new conference dates and information at the Early Bird rate previously given, since there were some that could not make it to the May conference that may want to register for the September dates. 

We look forward to seeing everyone in September and we will keep a diligent watch on the ever changing situation. We will also continue to put out more details as we get things set up. Keep watch on the website and Facebook for more details.

See you all soon!
