Call for Presentations

We would like to give you the opportunity to present a workshop on a topic of your interest to help others fully benefit from the Fire Corps program.
 
The Training Summit provides an opportunity to share ideas and best practices, network, participate in training, and learn valuable information to help departments and agencies enhance their Fire Corps programs. Therefore, presentation subject matter should relate to local Fire Corps program needs (i.e. outreach and awareness, retention and recruitment, volunteer management, Fire Corps volunteer training, etc.). Each workshop will be 60 minutes.
 
To submit your speaker proposal, fill out the form at https://nvfc.wufoo.com/forms/fire-corps-training-summit-speaker-proposal/. Proposals are due by March 16, 2012. Fire Corps will review all presentation proposals. Selections will be made based on quality, relevance, focus, practical application, and the presenter’s experience and credentials.
 
We hope you will take this opportunity to present to your fellow peers and educate one another based on your experiences and successes.
