The theme of the 2019 Spring Workshop is “Where we Come
Together to Keep Moving Forward.” Our
organization with the education, training, and networking it offers is key in
accomplishing the goal of moving forward.
As a member of the Oregon Fire Service Office Administrator’s group, you
are undoubtedly a key person in your organization that is valued and counted on
to keep your own organization together and moving forward. Building
relationships, being transparent, knowledgeable about your job, professional in
your dealings with co-workers and the public, and being adaptable to our
ever-changing jobs is what makes each one of you so special. I am constantly
reminded of the importance of these characteristics that each of us has, and reflecting
on what an amazing organization we have because of those traits. Whether you’re
new to OFSOA, or you’ve been a member for a very long time, I hope you find the
organization beneficial to yourself and your career in the fire service.
Upcoming Board meetings will be held as follows:
Second Quarter meeting will be held at 12:30 p.m.
April 17, 2019 at Albany Fire.
Third Quarter meeting will be held at 1 p.m.
July 9, 2019 at DPSST in Salem.
The Strategic Plan update was postponed due to our
massive late-winter storm in Central Oregon. We are looking at potential dates
to reschedule the meeting. I’m looking forward to the Board having the
opportunity to update this important document, which will give the organization
a solid plan for the future.
The 2019 Conference planning is underway and will be held
October 16-18, 2019 at the Grand Hotel in Bridgeport Village. Watch for more
details on this event on the website, and an update from the conference planning committee during workshop!
