Networking at FRI: Great Opportunities This Year for Members, Attendees and Sponsors to Get Together
September 15, 2010
Return to the September
IAFC On Scene: September 2010
The Welcome Reception was once again a huge success this year! Over 1,000 attendees enjoyed delicious appetizers and drinks while networking with new and old colleagues and with IAFC staff members. Rounds of poker and Texas Hold ‘Em were played and prizes were awarded. Hosted again by 1-800-BoardUp, this event was a definite crowd pleaser and a great way to kick off the conference.
One of the later networking opportunities during FRI week is the Fit-to-Fight 5K, and a number of people once again got together to get fit and run for a good cause—helping to raise money for the education of future leaders. Proceeds from the race benefit the IAFC Foundation, providing scholarships to first responders for advancing their fire service education.
Race results are available from the Fit-to-Fight 5K webpage;click on View Race Results and look for your name in the list or search by first or last name, bib number, etc.
