Planning for the 2022 Central States Communications Exercise has started, and we are extremely excited about bringing together an even bigger and better experience for the participants this year. The event will be held September 13-16, 2022 at the Downstream Resort Complex in Quapaw, Oklahoma (just a couple minutes outside of Joplin, Missouri).

We are working hard to help ensure that participation for the players in the exercise remains at little or no cost. With that, we encourage vendor sponsorships. For those interested in becoming a vendor, please contact Dan Busse at dan@central-states-comms.org.

Registration for participants is now open, and can be done through this link. If your agency blocks Google Forms, or you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to either Tara Hammer (tara@central-states-comms.org) or Jon Ayres (jon@central-states-comms.org). **Please note - the registration is for those who are wishing to be players in the exercise at this time. A separate registration will be open for vendors soon. That being said, vendors who are interested in playing as participants and being assigned to a team can register here to do that.**

This year, we are also bringing in many people to assist with the overhead planning including team members from the Southwest Missouri Incident Support Team.
