EMCOMMWEST 2013 cancelled

There will be no EMCOMMWEST ham radio convention in 2013.

The board has been discussing the options for and fate of EMCOMMWEST 2013. It says that there have been many changes in the volunteer workforce during the past 12 months. This coupled with the small period of time between now and the traditional date of the event has led the Board to decide to forgo 2013.

The Board goes on to say that circumstances leading to this decision include the loss of several key volunteers; the continued inability to draw the major vendors and manufacturers to the show and the fact that little has been accomplished to make measurable progress toward event production for this year. It goes on to say that if there is to be an EMCOMMWEST in 2014 it may require a local club to take the helm and provide the much-needed volunteer base for the event.

EMCOMMWEST began in 1999 when a group of Northern Nevada amateur radio operators interested in improving emergency communications hosted the very first symposium that lead to the convention as it is today.
