Professional Development

Mission: The IAFC Professional Development Committee sets the strategic direction for professional development to meet the leadership challenges of today and tomorrow.

Vision: Guiding the professional development of Leaders.

Values: Lead. Educate. Serve

The IAFC affirms professional development is the planned, progressive, career-long process of education, training, self-development, and experience. To assist the professional development of our members, the IAFC Professional Development Committee recommends the following publications which will be rotated on a quarterly basis. These books come recommended from our committee members. They are valuable resources that have assisted their continual growth and development as a leader in fire and emergency services. The Professional Development Committee members hope that others will find them valuable too.
