Brigade Secretaries' Workshops

Are you an existing or new Brigade Secretary or looking to enhance or refresh your skills?

We offer FREE comprehensive Brigade Secretaries' Workshops to strengthen your skills and help you gain insights into how to do your role.

This Workshop is delivered by UFBA Membership Support and current Brigade Secretary/Treasurer of the Porirua Volunteer Fire Brigade, Jane Davie.

In this workshop we cover:

  • Role of the Brigade Secretary
  • Governance of meetings - agendas, minutes, voting processes
  • Rules and Regulations
  • Services of the UFBA
  • Service honours
  • FENZ policies and guidelines 

Attendees are provided with an exclusive resource folder which gives Secretaries all the information they need at their fingertips.

This is an excellent opportunity to ask questions and network with other secretaries.  It's informative, fun, and relaxed.  Workshops are held online via Microsoft Teams making this training more accessible than ever!
