APSS LINX Symposium


The APSS LINX 2018 Symposium purpose is to provide Learning, Involvement, Networking, eXchange to transform your public safety operations.   2018 marks the 5th year of the APSS User Symposium held October 3-5 in Columbus, Ohio.  A lot has changed from the original user symposium when a few users gathered from around the state to hone their skills, help shape the software’s future, and share ideas.  The redevelopment and introduction of APSS LINX promises to the users knowledge base and provide much needed education, certification opportunities and new hands-on training (HOT) pre-conference opportunities.  Despite the changes to the APSS Symposium the premise remains the same… great training, great content, great discussions all with a goal to help your organization navigate industry trends and achieve optimal efficiency through the use of technology.

For those who are new to the APSS family, the APSS LINX is held annually to bring together users and prospective users of the APSS Product Suite.  The symposium agenda includes more than thirty separate educational sessions conducted by subject matter experts, industry leaders, and software power users.  The purpose is to provide the inspiration, education, and connections you need to transform your agency’s business and operations.

In October, APSS will host police, fire, ems and telecommunicators from all over the globe.  Though inspiring keynote, educational breakouts, hands-on training, and unlimited networking opportunities, you will learn that the symposium is truly remarkable.
