Melanie Neal
My name is Melanie Neal and I am currently the Acting Director and Operations Manager for Guilford Metro 911.  On June 8th,  I have been in the Emergency Services industry for 27 years.  I was a deputy sheriff for ten and a half years, and the last sixteen have been devoted to the 911 industry.  I feel I bring a unique perspective to the industry after having been a field responder and then transitioning to the 911 center.  I am a member of both NENA and APCO, am active in the bi-monthly meetings and I am ready to become more active state wide.  I feel, if given the opportunity to be the 2nd Vice President of the North Carolina chapter of APCO, I would be able to become more involved and play a greater role.  At the PSAP Manager’s inaugural meeting in November of 2014, I stressed to the group that we need managers to get involved.   Our chapter represents Public Safety Professionals in North Carolina, but I want to see more involvement in our State chapter.  I hope, if elected, to lead more people from our industry to get involved and participate, especially with all the current legislative items affecting the 911 industry.  Everyone has a voice and deserves to be heard.  Thank you!
