Alabama NENA Nominations

ALABAMA NENA CALL FOR OFFICER NOMINATIONS – 2020

This is the first official notification for Officer Nominations by the Election Committee for 2020. Nominations are for Second Vice President (VP), Mobile LATA VP, Montgomery LATA VP and Huntsville LATA VP. At our July Quarterly Meeting, the Election Committee will announce its nominations for the upcoming vacant positions and call for further nominations from the floor.  Voting for candidates will occur 60 days in advance of our October meeting and be announced at that time. 

Alabama NENA - Next Quarterly Meeting - & Upcoming Events

The 1st Quarter NENA Membership meeting will be held at the Alabama Veterans Museum Event Venue in Athens, AL. January 28th at 10:00.  The Event Venue is located at 114 Pryor St W across the parking lot from the Alabama Veterans Museum that many of you have probably been to before in Athens. There should be plenty of parking in front of the building and if you arrive early or wish to stay afterwards the Veterans Museum should be open to tour as well. I put together a quick map showing the location of the Event Venue in relation to the Museum to help clear up confusion upon arrival.

 

We secured a group rate at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites at 16074 Athens Limestone Blvd Athens, AL. 35613 for $104 per night for a King or a Double Queen. The contact at the hotel is Laurie White 256-232-7931. Make sure and tell them that you are with Alabama NENA to receive the room rate. The rates are available for a day prior and a day afterwards for those coming early or staying late.

Alabama NENA Aid to Florida

The Alabama NENA Chapter recently approved $5,000 to assist our 9-1-1 peers hit by Hurricane Michael. The Calhoun County Florida PSAP was basically adopted and asked to submit a list of specific items they needed. This week members delivered generators, tents, sleeping bags, Lowe’s and Wal-Mart gift cards, ice chests, socks and lots of food, water and other drinks. The Calhoun County PSAP employees were grateful, and AL NENA is happy we were able to help.
