Important updates from the president:
You need to note that several of the classes in several of the tracks are asking for sign ups. If you plan to take one of those classes please sign up as soon as possible. If we do not have enough people signing up we may need to cancel the class.
We have added a technology track this year. We are bring in several classes on drones and new software. Plus we will be offering information on the new state planning unit, this is a new offering that is of interest to many in the SAR community.
We also have helicopters from NAS Whidbey and Air Lift NW coming to discuss how they interact with SAR teams. They will be offering classes on how to package a subject for transport and how to work with a hoist operation..
It will be another great year. Be sure you are signed up and ready to enjoy the conference,
W.O. (Bill) Gillespie
