Regional Technology Work Group Agenda – September 24, 2020 – 1:00 pm


Please join us virtually next week Thursday for our monthly Technology Work Group meeting. Because our August meeting was canceled, we will now be seeing the Umanity and ESRI demos this month. We will also be doing a review of the Technology Training sections of the document formerly known as the MYTEP so that the Training and Exercise Work Group can finalize this year’s version. If time allows, we will also revisit the SPR gaps that we looked at in July, which Lach has kindly consolidated into a spreadsheet for us.

Please look below the agenda for call-in and screen-share instructions

No formal RSVP is required, but if you are forwarding this invitation to someone else in your organization, please email their information to by the Wednesday before the meeting so they can be added to future email distributions.
