2017 New York State Fall Leadership Summit & Vendor Expo
October 12 @ 9:00 am - October 15 @ 1:00 pm$325
The Association of Fire Districts of the State of New York (AFDSNY) sponsors two premier conferences and exhibitions a year which provide information and educational opportunities for member Districts’ Board of Fire Commissioners, district secretary and treasurers and other personnel. AFDSNY conferences bring together state and national decision makers and experts on all facets of fire district management and operations for providing emergency services within their districts. These conferences provide educational opportunities in all areas of Fire District administration and governance with instruction on topics such as legal or financial issues, human resources, liability, fire protection, safety, etc.
The Association has recognized the need to provide an opportunity for the leadership of Fire Districts to network and learn from their peers from across the state. We all struggle with the same issues, only the names on the back of the coats and color of the trucks are different. This conference will focus on how leaders can work together with each other and utilize their vendors to overcome obstacles and become more efficient in these trying times for public officials. Learn how to work with each other to keep your districts name out of negative headlines. Vendors are being asked to not only bring their products but also to bring solutions on common concerns they see from their clients and share these with the participants during booth hours and networking opportunities throughout the event. We encourage each district to send a couple of board members, their secretaries and treasures and members of their senior department leadership team (chiefs and/or business officers) to learn from our instructors and each other. This conference is designed to promote a healthy working relationship with all involved in the running of your district. Each participant will leave the conference with a renewed sense of direction and energy. Don’t miss out on the inaugural session of an annual event that is sure to change how we interact with each other and our vendors for the betterment of the communities we are sworn to protect. Beautiful downtown Saratoga also provides the perfect setting to enjoy this conference with your family and offers plenty to do for everyone. Please join us for this opportunity to learn, laugh and enjoy the company of your comrades for what promises to be an exciting event.
