The 2014 Leadership Development Symposium will be presented on Jan. 6-8 in Frisco, Texas, by the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) Emergency Services Training Institute.
A cadre of top-notch speakers will provide up-to-date information on leadership, management, safety, budgeting and other relevant topics, centered on the theme “Power of Influence.”
Featured speakers at the symposium this year include world champion adventure racer and New York Times best-selling author Robyn Benincasa, Next Generation speaker and blogger Ryan Jenkins, and Mike Lipkin, president of Environics/Lipkin.
The symposium is coordinated by the TEEX Leadership Development Program and funded, in part, by Texas general revenue. There is no registration fee for Texas resident firefighters, and sessions are geared to meet continuing education requirements for Texas fire officers and EMS personnel.
Last year, the conference drew a record attendance of more than 800 from Texas as well as 14 other states and two countries. The conference is popular with Texas fire chiefs as well as administrators from a wide spectrum of emergency services.
