APCO Partners Sign Charter Demonstrating Commitment to Global Alliance

Alexandria, Va. – On Sunday, November 4, 2012, representatives from APCO International in the United States, APCO Canada, British APCO and APCO Australasia (APCO Partners) came together to sign a Charter that demonstrates their continuing commitment to the APCO Global Alliance.  This monumental event took place in Winnipeg, Canada in conjunction with the APCO Canada Conference.

The signing of the new Charter solidifies APCO International’s relationship with its partners and “APCO is honored to be part of this monumental venture to ensure public safety communications is a priority across the globe,” said APCO International President Terry Hall.

“I believe that the signing of the new Charter for the APCO Global Alliance represents an important moment in time, as the constituent APCO Partners continue to further their aim to progress the global development of public safety communications,” said Alan House, President of British APCO.

The APCO Global Alliance was originally formed in 2006 during which time the APCO Partners executed a Charter that would exist for an initial term of five years.  The Partners agreed to sign a new Charter to provide the governance arrangements for the APCO Global Alliance to function for a further term from January 1, 2013 to September 30, 2015. 

APCO Canada’s President, Ryan Lawson, said, “APCO Canada is excited to be a participant in the Global Alliance and we look forward to our continued partnership.”

As part of the Charter, the APCO Partners prepared a Corporate Plan to guide the President’s Council as the Global Alliance undertakes its core business of promoting excellence in the global development and use of public safety communications. 
“The new Charter and Corporate Plan represent significant milestones in the continuing evolution of the Global Alliance as a body capable of identifying, informing and advocating on global issues,” said Geoff Spring, President of APCO Australasia.
