Contribute your skills to APCO's standards development efforts.
Getting involved in the APCO Standards Development process is an excellent way to take your professional game to the next level and contribute to producing standards for public safety communications. It may seem intimidating but it is not. It is fun to meet people from across the country who all share common interests and goals in public safety communications. Not only will you be contributing your knowledge and experience to the standard but you will learn a lot from your peers during the process. You do not need to be an expert to participate, you just need to be willing to contribute and use your skills to accomplish a common goal.

They use this process to determine the skills, knowledge, traits, job titles, and job description associated with the position.
