Know the Issues, Learn the Process, & Make a Difference at 9-1-1 Goes to Washington!  

With a new administration and new Congress taking office in January, the 2017 edition of 9-1-1 Goes to Washington (Feb 26 - March 1 at the Marriott Crystal Gateway) offers you a unique opportunity to make public safety a priority for our elected and appointed officials. GTW is an interactive forum where you learn about and discuss national 9-1-1 issues and advance those issues on Capitol Hill. This dynamic, hands-on program provides you with increased knowledge of 9-1-1 and homeland security legislative and regulatory topics, as well as critical information on the federal government process and how to work with federal policy makers. It is vital, now more than ever, that 9-1-1 professionals become active participants in the governmental process to advance the goals of our profession and industry.
