Pre-registration link. Registration is not required. However, we can help provide proof of attendance and allow us to capture our audience attendees to aid in future planning.

Please be aware that the National Weather Service has omitted their Advanced program. We may or may not have the afternoon program as we work to find presenters to fill that space.

Welcome to the new CollinARES website.  It is still in its infancy and will be growing as we move forward.

Many of the files are currently linked to to maintain cohesion.  You will need to be a member of the CollinARES to view them.

Please be sure to include your First and Last Name and Call Sign in your profile on so we are able to manage the members and keep away any unwelcome traffic.

If you have a suggestion for the site, please forward for consideration.
