Executive Development Conference

Our annual summer conference is intended for head of department Fire Chiefs, Chief Officers and any Fire Service professionals who currently hold or wish to pursue a career in leadership. The educational program is structured as all general sessions, bringing together executive and management level discussions as well as topics at the forefront of concern. This program aims to give the participants a more expansive view of Fire Service issues and their role as leaders to influence the future of their department and the industry as a whole.

Full registration to the conference includes access to various networking events and a guest pass for a spouse/partner. In an industry so close knit and where relationships matter, this event fosters the concept of the "fire family" and encourages participants to connect and share ideas with one another so together, we can make the Fire Service better than we left it.

The vendor opportunity at this event is through sponsorship and a limited vendor showcase of cocktail rounds with only informational material/giveaways permitted to give all vendors equal representation.
