It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Carl Holmes Executive Institute’s 30th Anniversary Annual Conference here in the Great City of New Orleans, Louisiana. We are very grateful to Dillard University for the tremendous support they have provided as our long- time host and to the EDI Organizing Committee whose members have put together and engaging program.
We have many exciting opportunities for professional and personal growth this week with our highly-experienced and committed instructors and facilitators. This group of supremely talented and trained individuals are uniquely placed to give you real-world best practices and invaluable insights into today’s fire service and EMS industries that address key themes, trends and current practices for communities across the nation. The wonderful thing about EDI is the valuable perspective from those who rose through the ranks, thanks to their participation and support of EDI.
