Subject: RE: Emergency Interoperability Summit at the NIEM Traing Events -- Update

Hello Everyone,


I wanted to pass along an update. 


All our new requests were forwarded to NIEM.  I have a conference call with NIEM staff later today.  Initial feedback looks good and I hope to forward final details to everyone later today or tomorrow morning at the latest. 


Regards, Jane

Subject: Emergency Interoperability Summit at the NIEM Traing Events -- Update
Importance: High



Dear Committee Members,


As you all know, I’ve been working over the last few days on integrating our Emergency Interoperability Summit into the large NIEM training event in Baltimore, Maryland.  I held several conference calls with various people discussing the best scenario that provides us the most visibility.  Given the size of the NIEM event, you can image that is no easy task.  Please find the current NIEM event program for review:  http://www.iir.com/registration/niem/pdf/Master.pdf .  Please note:  The NIEM event structure includes six presentation tracks over three-four days.     


Key to our success at this event will be our interoperability demonstrations.  Donna Roy (with DHS) expressed much interest in this aspect.  In addition, NIEM isn’t planning to hold interoperability demonstrations or exhibits at this particular event.  We would be the only ones – giving us a leg up.  Therefore, we feel that our best option will be to focus not as much on presentations, but on the interoperability demonstrations themselves. 


Below and attached is an outline of an option we would like the committee to consider.  Please review all the information and let me know if it might be possible to hold a quick special call this week to discuss it further.  Thanks in advance, Jane
