Thank you for taking an interest in finding out more about the International Fire Buff Associates (IFBA) organization. The IFBA has had a rich history over the past 60 years and continues to thrive.
The Milwaukee Fire Bell Club is looking forward to hosting the 2013 IFBA Convention July 9-13th. We have a great program planned. From the tour of Pierce Manufacturing Co., the Venerable Fire Collection, a boat cruise of the beautiful Milwaukee harbor, buffet dinner at Mader’s Restaurant and the Great Milwaukee Muster, there is a little something for everyone.
Please check out the “Convention News” tab of this website for more information including the convention schedule and registration forms. Please note that there has been a change in the host hotel location. We will be staying at the Best Western plus Milwaukee Airport Hotel and Conference Center (5105 S. Howell Avenue, Milwaukee, WI 53207).
I would like to encourage anyone that has not attended a convention before to consider any one of the upcoming conventions, whether it be the 2013 Convention in Milwaukee, WI, 2014 in Dallas, TX or 2015 in Hartford, CT. There is a lot of fun to be had, great conversation, and a chance to see old friends and make new friends as well.
See you in July!
Carolyn Franz Wignall
IFBA President 2012-2013
