3rd Annual Chiefs Summit

The VFCA is pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Fire Chiefs Summit - the only statewide meeting solely designed for the Chief of Department (or, in the Chief's absence, a deputy who is qualified to act as the Chief). The event will be held May 18-19 at the Courtyard Marriott in Glen Allen, VA. Last year's event was very strongly attended and we received very positive feedback from attendees.

This is a unique event and a great opportunity to spend time with other fire chiefs. Join us, and enjoy a no-pressure, high-value summit with your peers from across the Commonwealth.
