Conferences

AFDA sponsors two premier conferences and exhibitions a year which provide information and educational opportunities for member Districts’ staff, Board of Directors, and personnel. AFDA conferences bring together national and state decision makers and experts on all facets of emergency service, from leadership and management to operations. These conferences provide educational opportunities in all areas of Fire District administration and governance with instruction on topics such as legal or financial issues, human resources, liability, fire protection, safety, etc. Continuing education opportunities are also available based on individual certification requirements. These conferences are held at various locations throughout the state. AFDA members receive a registration discount for all educational conferences.

The room block for the conference is now closed.   Home 2 Suites and the Hampton Inn are the closest.  Book soon as there is a concert that week and they may be running low on rooms too.

The AFDA and AFCA joint leadership conference will be held July 10-12, 2018 at the Renaissance Phoenix Glendale Hotel in Glendale.

Attendee registration and EXPO registration is now open! Click here for Attendee and Exhibitor Registration
