The Board of Directors approved the 2019 financial budget prior to the end of 2018. The proposed budget was submitted by secretary/treasurer James Fullingim and executive director Lisa Moatts to the full board December 20th. The budget was unanimously approved by the deadline of December 28, 2018.
Highlights of the new budget include training programs to be made available to the Southwestern membership. The idea of the training program is to deliver to member fire departments within the SW Division a selection of training that best suits their needs. Please stay posted to our website for more information The board has selected a team of 5 committee members, 1 from each state to assist the board in site selection, education offerings, speakers etc.
Another aspect of the budget is to provide the means necessary to have 1 of our executive board members travel to one of the state conferences on behalf of the IAFC-SW Division. Your state elected vice president will also be present representing the Division.
