USERS' GROUP CONFERENCES
10th Annual 2018 E-Plan Users' Group Training
“Your Community’s Right to Know”
Ritz-Carlton Naples Beach Resort
October 29 and 30, 2018
This year we will focus on the past year’s disasters and how you can help prepare the community.
Also, we have a special guest speaker, Dr. David Griffin! Dr. Griffin, was the driver of the first engine to respond to the disastrous 2007 Sofa Super Store fire that claimed the lives of nine of his fellow firefighters. Plagued with survivor’s guilt, he numbed himself with alcohol, painkillers, and blood sports so much so that it nearly cost him his life.
Now, Griffin has completed a Doctorate of Education in organizational leadership and development, training organizations across the globe on the importance of moving away from "the way we've always done it" mentality. He speaks about the Sofa Super Store fire and has helped with massive reforms in how firefighters are trained as well as how executives lead their teams. Griffin has dedicated his life to spreading the message of change to all types of organizations including for-profit, non-profit, and public service.
*** AGAIN this year! 2 days of CEU or CMP hours can be submitted for industry representatives. ***
