Premiered Wednesday, October 7, 2020, AFSA's first-ever virtual general session! When the COVID-19 pandemic forced AFSA to cancel its in-person event at the Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort in Orlando, Florida, members and staff were disappointed. However, AFSA’s Board of Directors decided to bring members together online for a virtual general session to celebrate the association and its members.

During this unprecedented time, our members’ health and safety is our top priority, and one of our greatest strengths is our ability to adapt and reinvent ourselves when needed the most. While we are disappointed that we cannot meet in person, we are excited to bring everyone together virtually."

-- Chair of the AFSA Board Ted Wills,
President of Anchor Fire Protection in Perkiomenville, PA



The online general session will feature guest speakers including Wills; 2020 Convention Co-Chair Chris Johnson, president & CEO of Piper Fire Protection in Clearwater, Florida; and AFSA’s vice presidents, who will give updates on the association’s activities.

Award Winners

A highlight of the session will be presenting two association awards: the 2020 Fire Sprinkler Advocate of the Year award to Maryland State Fire Marshal Brian Geraci and the 220 Young Professional of the Year award to Jamil Shamoon, Symons Fire Protection, San Diego, California.
