I hope everyone had a great holiday season and I am looking forward to working with you all in the New Year!

The 2019 Heroes Gala is just a month away. If you have never attended the Gala before you should definitely consider doing so. Our association has worked with Supporting Heroes for several years now and the support they provide to the family's of our members in their time of need is outstanding. The program during the Gala is a great tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. For more information and to sign up please visit the Supporting Heroes website.

Please also take the time in the near future to consider attending our state convention this year. All of the information is on our website.

With that all said I would also like to ask you all to please take the time to visit our legislation page on the IVFA website and stay current on the issues that we are working on to better the fire service.

And as a reminder if you have an event that you would like to have your members 10 or 25 year pins presented at please contact your district chairman or just attend your next district meeting. Once again I would like to thank you all! And as always if you should need anything please feel free to contact me at any time.

President, IVFA
