The session objectives are:

- To seek input from partners and stakeholders on how the national MASAS architecture evolves;
- To seek input from partners and stakeholders on options for governance and sustainability of MASAS as it advances into the future;
- Present opportunities on how to get involved and connect to the system.
The initial discussions will be strategic and non-technical, but more technical discussions may take place as the session progresses. Participants will be encouraged to ask questions and engage in the discussions.
The session will only be open to registered attendees of the CITIG National Forum you are all encouraged to attend and join other public safety and emergency management practitioners to develop a mutual understanding of the key voice and data interoperability issues facing todays public safety sector.
