The California Firefighter Joint Apprenticeship Committee’s 14th Biennial Conference is scheduled for November 2-4 at the Westin Mission Hills in Rancho Mirage, CA.

The conference, which in past years has drawn more than 300 fire chiefs, labor presidents, training officers and sub-JAC members, features inspiring keynote speakers and workshops intended to make California’s fire service better equipped to meet the ever-changing challenges of their profession.

As in years past, the conference will include the JAC’s signature golf tournament, silent auction and dinner. Participants will have the opportunity to play a round against the beautiful desert backdrop of the Westin all while benefiting the California Fire Foundation.

The tentative schedule is included below, and more information will become available as we draw closer to the event. Please mark your calendars and plan to join us at an event that promotes innovation and collaboration, while developing the leadership and vision necessary for success.
