2021 (Virtual) Employer Summit

FPPA’s top priority is to provide meaningful, lasting benefits to the first responders we serve. This goal would be unachievable without the strong working relationship we have with our employer contacts. With this in mind, we’d like to formally invite you to FPPA’s (virtual) Employer Summit, our annual event tailored specifically for you.

Join us to recap the last year, and get a look at what’s coming up for FPPA. With changes coming to the FPPA retirement process, and pending legislation affecting thousands of members, there’s a lot to talk about! RSVP now so you can learn the very latest, and get your questions answered.
