MVA’s latest appointment scheduling event is this week.
MVA and its members of the International Federation of Fire Fighters are hosting their annual convention in Brooklyn, and this week they’re also hosting a special appointment event at MVA headquarters in New York City.
The first-ever appointment of an MVA member was scheduled for Saturday at 5:00 p.m.
(EST), but due to weather, the appointment has been moved to a later date.
MVAs first-year member, Jim Dolan, said that this year’s appointment was postponed until Monday to allow for the arrival of firefighters and other staff members.
“We have so many people on the ground right now, and we are going to try to get some more people in the room as well,” Dolan said.
“The event is a chance to really show the fire service and the MVA that we care about them.
It’s important that we have people that are going back to work and coming back to the table.”
MVA members and staff members will also be in attendance at the first-of-its-kind MVA Awards Ceremony on Sunday at the Hyatt Regency in New Jersey.
The ceremony will honor the past, present, and future firefighters, as well as their families and loved ones.
For the first time ever, MVA is hosting a Veterans Day event.
“Veterans Day is a great time to be here, and for us it’s a chance for people to meet other firefighters and to honor the people who have served our country so well,” said MVA President and CEO, Mike Brown.
“To have this opportunity to honor our veterans and recognize their service to us, to the MVC and the community, is so very special and exciting.”
MVC members will be in uniform on the day, but will be allowed to wear civilian clothes.
MVC will be hosting a panel discussion with retired and current MVA leaders on Sunday afternoon at 6:00 pm.
The panelists will discuss the future of the MVMAs services, including the MVCA and its upcoming annual event.
The group will also have a meeting on Monday with the MVB’s Board of Directors and members to address some of the challenges that the Mvc faces in serving its members and communities.
“I think it’s important to remember that the mission of the organization is to help all of the fire fighters in the world,” Brown said.
