Since 2001 Nevada Amateur Radio
Repeaters, Inc. (NARRI) sponsored the Annual VoIP IRLP Conference
that is held in the Spring. Prior to 2012 the conference was held
in Las Vegas as a separate event. Now it is part of EMCOMMWEST
A message from the EMCOMMWEST Board of Directors:
The Board of Directors of EMCOMMWEST, Inc. have been discussing the options for and fate of EMCOMMWEST 2013. There have been many changes in the volunteer workforce during the past 12 months. This coupled with the smal period of time between now and the traditional date of the annual event have led the Board to decide to forgo the event in 2013. The Board discussed this at great length. It was not a decision that was made lightly. Circumstances leading to this decision include:
1) Loss of several key volunteers.
2) The continued inability to draw the major vendors and manufacturers to the event.
3) To date, little has been accomplished to make measurable progress toward event production, (formation of committees, construction of speaker forums, etc.)
4) A continuing reduction of the number of volunteers to put the event on, especially in key pre-event roles (registration, forums, vendors, banquet(s) speakers, etc.)
I am sure there will be many people who will be disappointed and some may even be angry. The Board of Directors did not feel comfortable placing the treasury of the corporation at risk at such a late date with so little firmly nailed down. As President of the Board of Directors, I take full responsibilty for the Board's decision. I also wish to thank all those who put their hearts and souls into this organization over the years. It just isn't in the cards this year.
If the event is to be put on in 2014 it may take a local Club to take the helm and provide the much-needed volunteer base for the event.

made Emcommwest 2012 a huge success!
