FYI: I received email about the Conference from Chris Turko, (“sheriffs org”) Tuesday June 9, signed off by Michael S. Ada, Emergency Preparedness Manager of Texas Association of Regional Council. It was to remind me to reserve a room at the Omni Houston Hotel on Riverway.
I won’t be able to attend but know it will be well-attended.
