Volunteer recruitment gets a lot of attention, but retaining members is just as important for a successful fire department. After all, why go through the hassle of convincing someone to join your department if you can’t get them to stay? Join the NVFC on July 26 at 2pm ET for a Facebook Live discussion on retention strategies your department can employ to keep members active and engaged. Panelists include NVFC directors Sheri Nickel and Ken Pienkowski, Tiger Schmittendorf, vice president of strategic services and public safety at First Arriving, and John D’Alessandro, association secretary of the Firemen’s Association of the State of New York. Registration is not required and this virtual event is free to attend. The conversation will be streamed live on the NVFC’s Facebook page.
