The primary function of the iCERT Marketing Committee (“MARCOM”) is to serve as a central point of collaboration and discussion among member companies’ marketing professionals for both the betterment of the marketing processes of the entire public safety technology industry and the marketing practices of iCERT as a trade association.


These overall goals may be achieved via activities internal to MARCOM, recommendations to or collaboration with other Committees or Working Groups, and/or recommendations for Board Action.  MARCOM will also perform other duties, as noted below, and as may be assigned by the Board.

  • Develop tools and processes to assist with public safety marketing, communication, and education

  • Produce educational/instructional materials/webinars/other materials
