NENA invites members of the 9-1-1 community to submit nominees to represent stakeholder interest categories on the NG9-1-1 Interoperability Oversight Commission (Commission). This body will provide independent oversight of the PSAP Credentialing Agency (PCA) and the Forest Guide, two functional elements required to be operated centrally for NG9-1-1 to work according to prevailing standards. These requirements come from specifications developed under NENA’s standards Development Group (NDG) and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).

Members of the 9-1-1 community are invited to nominate an individual to serve on this Commission. Please send all nominations to NENA’s Technical Director, Brandon Abley by February 24th, 2020.

In submitting a nominee, please provide the following documentation (or equivalent):

  • The nominee’s resume or CV;
  • A short statement describing the nominee’s qualifications, such as related technical expertise
    and/or subject domain in 9-1-1;
  • A short statement clarifying the rationale that the nominee represents the identified stakeholder group; and
  • Evidence that the nominee represents the identified stakeholder group, if applicable, such as an affirmative vote of a board of directors nominating the nominee to sit on the Commission.
