In April, Alisa will appear, albeit remotely, at the Women in Fire/FDIC Conference in Indianapolis. She is part of a panel discussion being moderated by Dr. Candice McDonald (National Volunteer Firefighter Council” about the resource guide they are creating addressing how complaints of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation can be brought forward to an appropriate agency.

She will also be presenting along with retired Public Safety Director John Rukavina at the Southeastern Association of Fire Chiefs Conference in Wilmington, Delaware, in June. Their new program, “One of Your Firefighters is Pregnant – Now What?” is very timely. Alisa and the IAFC Bullying Behavior Taskforce will also be presenting their Workplace Bullying program, as well as training individuals to lead this program, at the conference. More information to come here.
Alisa also is thankful that the National Volunteer Fire Council has invited her to speak in June as to why Volunteer Fire Departments should be cognizant of various employment laws to spur recruitment and retention. For registration, click here https://lnkd.in/gC8qnhy4
