Thank you to all our WFAS members that were able to attend this past year's conference in Leavenworth! For those of you that missed out, a few highlights included lessons learned from a number of local Fire Chiefs on recent Washington State disasters we have encountered, tips for adapting to change, {WOODY}, and the highly popular casino night!

Your 2016 WFAS Board is already hard at work planning for the 2017, 2018 and even 2019 conferences! We will be meeting this friday in Cle Elem to gather our ideas and put our heads together. 

We have put together a survey for all members, to gather feedback on the recent conference, as well as overall suggestions. If you have not already, please follow this link to fill it out: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8V3LBDJ. The deadline is this Friday, June 17th to be entered in the drawing for WFAS merch for filling out the survey. 

If you missed out in Leavenworth, don't forget to Save the Date and put the 2017 WFAS Annual Conference on your calendars for May 8-10 in Olympia.

WFC Fire Administrative Support (WFAS) recognizes that some departments do not have the budget available for their administrative staff to attend section functions.  Knowing the benefits of continuing education, increasing workplace proficiency and the value of network sharing, we have created a scholarship fund to assist these individuals. Money collected from the raffle at our annual conference each year funds this program.  The scholarship is designed to cover, or assist with, registration fees and/or travel & lodging costs for the recipients to attend section functions.

The following is a guideline for disbursement of these funds:

  1. Interested WFAS members shall fill out the application and forward it to the Scholarship Chair.
  2. The application shall include a written summary as to the reason for the request.
  3. Priority for funds usage will be toward registration; if scholarship funds are still available after grants are made, funds will be applied to other conference costs, ie. lodging, travel expenses, etc, dependent upon need and availability. 
  4. The Chair will appoint a committee to review all applications and select an applicant(s) to receive scholarship funds.
