Public Safety Broadband & Beyond

The Vision 2023 Summit is a FirstNet users conference with a mission to ensure every organization and person involved in safety, security, emergency and crisis response has the tools, technology, and knowledge that they need to keep themselves and their communities safe.

Remaining Agile
COVID has been a game changer. We're seeing what is going on in our communities across this country and we know it is stressful.  As we watch first responders and all medical service providers navigate the shifting landscape, our hearts go out to you for the challenges you face.  A conference is likely not a high priority for you right now, but all the same, we feel the information we are compiling for your benefit is so important that we're forging ahead with our planning and hopeful you will join us.

As an association, we’re working hard to create an incredible experience for all FirstNet users and potential users at our PSBTA FirstNet Users Summit, this coming January. We understand, however, things can change in an instant. We want to instill the highest level of confidence that we are monitoring the changing COVID climate and adjusting all precautionary measures in accordance with the local health department directives. Times like these reinforce the fact that a deeper understanding of how FirstNet can help you better serve your community is critical. We’ll bring cutting-edge training opportunities, access to the service providers building a better network and ecosystem to serve you, grants technical assistance and support to assist you in identifying potential funding sources to fund your project(s), and the ability to have meaningful conversations about what you need as an agency, all in one convenient location.
