training opportunities are a cornerstone of our organization as we strive to support and develop our members. our board of directors are continually seeking out timely training which we believe will benefit our membership. The nawp was honored to host our first annual regional conference for Female First Responders in 2019. We welcomed police, fire, and ems personnel from all over the midwest to discuss leadership, mentorship, tactics, investigations, and the future of women in first responder fields.
our exclusive events have aided in creating lasting, supportive peer networks across the region. our younger members have been able to speak to some of the first female first responders in the region, hear their stories, and learn from their experiences. sometimes you just need a few laughs with a peer who understands your world.
The Events & Training committee is led by the current NAWP
