The New England Conference of Firefighters is the caucus of all the IAFF Locals in the 3rd District, which began in 1946 and has changed names for the conference over the years. The Conference provides an opportunity for the 3rd District to meet collectively in New England ahead of the IAFF Convention and hear from the General President and General Secretary Treasurer who have been invited to speak. Here we can discuss pending IAFF Convention business, and take positions as a District. Additionally delegates will receive updates from each of the State Presidents detailing how these difficult economic times are leading to unprecedented attacks on our membership, and how each state is dealing with these issues.
This Conference will also provide an opportunity to get our current and future leaders much needed training on Union issues through the IAFF education Department's Partnership in Education Program. The same training that is offered at the ALTS seminars will be offered in New England to afford every Local the opportunity to better serve its members. There will be three separate tracks of classes offered.
Questions about registration, classes, and attendance should be directed to the New England Conference of Fire Fighters Secretary-Treasurer Bill McQuillen at the Professional Fire Fighters of NH 603-223-3304 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
