As Presidents of the Iowa Chapters of NENA and APCO it is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of the Spring Conference that was to be held April 6 & 7, 2020 at the Prairie Meadows Events Center in Altoona IA.  As the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic continues to unfold we place the health and well-being of all 9-1-1 professionals as the utmost importance.  This decision came after reviewing guidelines that have been forthcoming from various public health organizations and after a discussion with both executive boards.  Please review the following information regarding the conference cancellation:


  • Iowa APCO and Iowa NENA will be transferring all purchased conference passes to the fall conference.  Fall conference dates are normally determined just before the Spring conference commences to inform attendees to save the date.  Fall conference dates will be provided as soon as possible.

  • If you do not request a refund and opt for the fall conference pass credit please note that the attendee name can be changed. If you are not able to attend the fall conference we will provide a full refund.

  • If you would like to be reimbursed for your conference pass please contact the following individuals:


                          APCO: Treasurer Mike Becker at treasurer.iowaapco@gmail.com


                          NENA: Treasurer Amanda Roush at aroush@storycountyiowa.gov


**If you are registered for both conferences you will need to contact both treasurers to request a refund**


  • If you have booked your hotel accommodations at Prairie Meadows please call them directly at 515-967-1000 to cancel your reservation.  If you do not contact them they will contact you.  They will not be charging anyone’s card who does cancel their accommodations. 



We appreciate your support during this unparalleled time of concern.
