Local Leaders and National Staff Work Towards the Future in Connecticut Leadership Conference

On Friday, November 7, IAEP local leaders from Connecticut met with staff members from the IAEP legal team, national representatives, and National Director Philip Petit for the first-ever IAEP Connecticut Leadership Conference.

During the conference, leaders received in-depth training IAEP Lead Counsel Rebecca Mitchell, Regional Counsel Doug Hall, and National Representative Phillip Roche.  Attendees also led discussions about setting a legislative agenda for EMS in Connecticut and the potential for future growth within the state.  

“The IAEP is focused on bringing our members closer together and to give them the tools to succeed and build a better future,” said National Director Petit.   “Our locals have grown with us and these conferences will give us an even better chance to make a difference for EMS in the region by working together and promoting a united front.”

Leaders received in-depth training on grievance and arbitration procedures, with a special focus on appeals and denials, as well as recognizing and effectively handling prohibited practice and how working with the Office of the General Counsel during the filing and investigation of unfair labor practice charges at a state and federal level. 

The IAEP looks forward to holding more regional leadership conferences around the country in the coming months.
