Have a voice at Conference: Voting Process for UFBA delegates (doesn't apply to FRFANZ attendees)

FRFANZ attendees will attend the FRFANZ AGM while UFBA voting takes place.

One delegate with voting rights from each Fire and Emergency NZ brigade/rural fire force that is also a member of the UFBA is funded for Conference registration, accommodation and travel.

Delegates have the opportunity to vote for representatives on the UFBA team including Board Directors, the President and the Technical Panel.

Additional members of each brigade/rural fire force may attend as observers. These delegates do not have delegate voting rights and accommodation and travel are not funded.

Exhibition Opportunities

The United Fire Brigades’ Association (UFBA) works with 14,000 firefighters from urban, rural, volunteer, career, industry and defence brigades throughout New Zealand. We give back to these selfless individuals by promoting their work and supporting them through advocacy and learning opportunities. FRFANZ represents the interests of rural and forest firefighters and agencies.

The 2.5 day conference is one of the largest gatherings of firefighters in New Zealand, bringing together firefighters from the length of the country and senior decision makers to share new ideas and keep informed on key issues.

As a non-profit organisation, UFBA seeks sponsorship and exhibitors to ensure our members have the best range of learning opportunities available. This includes displays of the latest technologies and services that you the exhibitor have to offer.

Please email the UFBA Events Team if you have any queries.

Registration has now closed for the 2018 Conference - however your brigade can still vote for UFBA representatives via proxy.
