UFBA Rural Leadership and Governance Workshop 22-24 June

UFBA Rural Leadership and Governance Workshop 22-24 June

Develop and strengthen your leadership and governance skills at our fully interactive 2.5 day course from Thursday 22 June to Saturday 24 June in Wellington.

The UFBA is seeking applications from rural firefighters for this special Leadership and Governance Workshop to provide this valued experience as we all meet the challenges of the transition to the new FENZ environment.

We are extending this invitation not only to UFBA members, but also to members of FRFANZ and rural volunteers who are not members of either organisation.

UFBA manages and covers the cost of travel arrangements, accommodation and meals for participants selected for this workshop.

“Leadership is a quality that every firefighter can demonstrate in their brigade, in their personal life and in their career.” George Verry, UFBA Chief Executive Officer.

A UFBA Leadership and Governance Workshop is an ideal opportunity for you to:

"Despite attending many leadership courses over the years, I felt this was the best one I had ever attended. This course would be very beneficial for Rural Fire Force Controllers / Leaders to assist them with their roles both in their fire forces and in their day to day lives in the community.” Gordon Foster, Deputy Principal Rural Fire Officer, Hastings
