The International Association of Wildland Fire and the Wildland Fire Leadership Council (WFLC) and its three regional strategy committees, invite you to register for the  7th Annual National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy Workshop, September 16-19, 2024 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

WFLC has affirmed that the Cohesive Strategy remains the solid framework by which all stakeholders can address barriers and identify actionable solutions for today’s complex wildland fire issues. The Cohesive Strategy Addendum Update was released in 2023 and provides a strategic look at the critical emphasis areas and key implementation challenges which were not addressed or have surfaced in the ten years since the development of the original 2014 Cohesive Strategy framework.

This event will take advantage of the unique opportunity to utilize the collective voice and brain trust of Workshop attendees to identify solutions and actions for barriers you’re experiencing, as well as for the Critical Emphasis Areas and Challenges outlined in the Cohesive Strategy Addendum that are keeping us from implementing the Cohesive Strategy at scale.
