  • Symposium draws record number of emergency responders to San Marcos

Leadership Development Symposium logoCollege Station, TX – More than 900 Texas emergency responders are expected to attend the 2015 Leadership Development Symposium on Jan. 12-14 in San Marcos at the Embassy Suites Conference Center.

A cadre of top-notch speakers will provide up-to-date information on effective leadership, management, safety, crisis communication, generational differences, budgeting and other relevant topics, centered on the theme “Breaking Barriers.”

Featured speakers at the symposium this year include author and former CEO of Southwest Airlines Jim Parker, author and leadership expert Capt. David Marquet (retired), and Mike Lipkin, president of Environics/Lipkin.

The symposium, now in its seventh year, is coordinated by the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) and funded, in part, by Texas general revenue funds. There is no registration fee for Texas resident emergency responders, and sessions are geared to meet continuing education requirements for Texas fire officers and EMS personnel.

The conference is popular with Texas fire departments as well as administrators from a wide spectrum of emergency services.
