The deadline to secure the discounted hotel rate is Thursday, Nov. 16. Registration is $350 for elected or career city officials from any Cal Cities member city.
The League of California Cities has returned to in-person events after more than a year of virtual learning and meetings! The Fire Chiefs Leadership Seminar — scheduled for Dec. 8 and 9 in Universal City — helps fire chiefs and their mid-level managers enhance their skills and increase their knowledge on a variety of issues.
This year’s sessions cover a wide range of topics designed to create more healthy, resilient, and successful fire departments. Start with the basics, such as how to create a new “Brain Health” culture for your departments, where prevention and resiliency are holistic essentials. Then, dive deep into national and regional conversations, like how to create a more inclusive and diverse fire service or what funding programs are available through the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services. More information, including full session descriptions, is available online.
Although COVID-19 cases are declining and vaccination rates are increasing, the pandemic is not over. Our number one priority will continue to be the health and safety of participants. Important health and safety information for attendees will be available in advance of the seminar for attendees and speakers.
