NEXT Annual Conference and AGM

143rd AGM & Conference - Wellington, 5-7 November 2021

There's no other event that brings together hundreds of brigade members from across New Zealand. 

Change and advancement begins with conversations. Meet new people, discover the latest from Fire and Emergency, hear from international speakers and experts in the fields of emergency service and wellbeing.

One space funded per member brigade (AGM delegate). Additional brigade members can join you at your brigades expense (AGM observer).

Our Conference begins with our celebrated AGM - next will be our 143rd! This is your opportunity to shape your association, an organisation built by the people, for the people.

Each member brigade is invited to nominate one delegate with voting rights to represent their brigade at conference. Help contribute to our quorum and play your part in our association.

Delegates have the opportunity to vote for representatives on the UFBA team including Board Directors, the Vice president/MAP member.

Each year all brigades receive a registration pack including instructions and forms for:

  • Delegate nomination form
  • Vice President/Board Member (if vacancy) nomination form
  • Motion proposal form
Covid-19 disclaimer. Under current NZ Level One we will be progressing with planning an in-person event. Due to the evolving nature of the global pandemic we can only anticipate changes so far in advance. Should any changes be necessary these will be made with the best information available at the time of decision making and with a mind to manage UFBA funds responsibly.
