South Dakota Fire Instructors Conference - 2023
Saturday, January 14, 2023 7:30 AM - Sunday, January 15, 2023 12:00 PM (CST)
Membership dues in the Society are per calendar year (Jan 1st-Dec 31st). As a reminder in order to be eligible for the insurance coverage the Society provides to its members, dues must be paid by January 15th.
BILLING CHANGE NOTICE: In an effort to better reach all of our members we have partnered with the SDFA and will be using the new Association Management System for tracking Membership as well as Annual Conference registration. This will allow us to better manage Dues billing for ALL of our members not just those that attend the conference, or remember to pay dues on their own. It will also allow for better communication with our members in the future as we will be able to easily send emails to all paid members.
This brings about a change to how this and future billings will work. Membership Renewal billing e-mails for Calendar year 2023 were recently sent out, if you did not get a billing notice, please contact Rick Gustad @ email@example.com with details and we will get it straightened out.
REMINDER: Dues must be paid by January 15th to be eligible for the insurance coverage.
PLEASE PAY DUES PRIOR TO REGISTERING FOR THE CONFERENCE - If you did not get a dues notice send your name/contact information to Rick Gustad @ firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get that straightened out.
If you wish to attend the Conference on January 14th-15th, those that are current PAID members of the Instructors Society will be able to register for the Conference at NO-COST if you register by December 31st, after that the cost increases by $5. Non-Members will also be able to register for the conference, as its open to anyone in the fire service. This allows us to easily separate membership billing and conference registration. It is vital that you pre-register for the conference as that information is also what's used to send Certificates and it also allows us to better calculate quantity of refreshments needed for the Venue.
If you are NOT attending the conference there is no need to register for the conference - THIS IS A CHANGE FROM PREVIOUS YEARS. You just need to pay the invoice that was sent for 2023 Membership Dues
Pre-Registration will also help prevent the large backlog of people at the registration desk the morning of the conference.
Thank you for supporting your South Dakota Society of Fire Service Instructors.
Stay Healthy. Stay safe.
