This past week, the Board of Directors for Monroe County ARES met, and have decided to postpone EmComm East until Fall 2013.

We are running into a fist-full of scheduling conflicts that are making it difficult to plan an emergency communications conference that is of the same quality as the past conferences we have hosted. In the region, we have several competing events that will significantly take away from our attendance. Our “call for programs” had several high quality proposals, however, we did not have enough proposals to fill all of the slots needed for this year’s conference.

Given the choice of hosting half a conference, or no conference at all, we felt it in the best interest to postpone until next Fall.

We truly appreciate everyone’s support of EmComm East. Each year, EmComm East has grown in size and quality, and has become one of the best Emergency Communications conferences in the North East. We want to ensure this continues to be a quality event. Especially if you are traveling to Rochester to attend our conference, we want to ensure that our event is worth your time and energy.

We will be announcing our plans for 2013 in early January. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
