Atlantic Fire Leadership Conference 2024: Call for Speakers

Atlantic Fire Leadership (AFL) Conference 2024

Summerside, PE June 27-30, 2024


For over 100 years, the Maritime Fire Chiefs Association (MFCA) has hosted its Atlantic conference, Atlantic Fire Leadership (AFL) Conference. This Atlantic conference gives leaders in the fire service from across the country, many of whom are also emergency managers, the opportunity to convene for educational and networking purposes.

This is a niche conference intended to facilitate and foster relationship building across the sector. The planning committee makes an effort to ensure relevance to all department types from large metro to small rural, from career to composite to volunteer.

For those not familiar with Atlantic Fire Leadership Conference, during this event we host our annual general meeting, memorial ceremony, our awards banquet, and take the time to catch up with each other. We hear new topics both from within the membership, and from guests who may be politicians, journalists, researchers, clinicians, policy experts, musicians, artists, athletes among others. Some discussions result in resolutions, ideas and programs that show up in the next year’s operating plan.

The conference committee is looking for the best speakers, with a focus on Climate change and its impacts to the future of Emergency Management and Fire Services, to make this an event to remember. The conference will be hosted in Summerside, PE.  We look forward to hearing your ideas. Thanks for considering your submission!

All submissions are due January 29, 2024.
