This year we will have a special presentation from the Fire Chief Greg Cassell and Local 1908 President Steve Thompson from Clark County Nevada, who will detail the response to the October 1, 2017 mass shooting. This is valuable presentation is not to be missed.
Additionally, you 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.
