On Saturday evening, January 9th 2021 I will be holding an interactive seminar from 8:00-9:00pm. This course is titled “Professionalism in EmComm, Preparing for Auxcomm”.
This is a course I developed as a video, but I am going to introduce it as an interactive format to keep folks engaged. This is geared towards amateur radio public service but is applicable to all Auxcomm programs.
We will cover what standards we expect out of Auxcomms in appearance, conduct and overall professionalism. What subconscious or overlooked habits may have a negative impact on your relationships with served agencies. How our internal hobby language and lingo is inappropriate to use with public safety agencies and can instantly turn folks off. How subtle very minimal changes can strengthen and boost relationships with the agencies we provide services to!
Anyone can confirm attendance in the Michigan Auxcomm Facebook group or by emailing me. Once we decide what vendor to use (GoTo Meeting or Microsoft Teams) an invite will be sent out. The workshop will be recorded for later viewing.
Please feel free to invite your respective programs, districts or local groups. We’re trying this out as a pilot, if it is received well I will hold these quarterly or even monthly. In 2019, when we surveyed key operators across the state, overwhelmingly (over 75%) said they wanted to see more training and development opportunities.
Hope everyone had a blessed Holiday season! I look forward to seeing what opportunities 2021 brings!
