2018 IVFA Annual Convention


June 20-23, 2018

2501 S. High School Road, Indianapolis

Your attendance is very important to the success of your convention. We encourage you to participate and show your support as we bring to you a full schedule of activities, information, education and camaraderie.

We have three levels of Registration:

Full Convention - $75. Includes meetings, vendors showcase, convention opening, memorial service, educational seminars, Wednesday night welcoming gathering and Hoosier Burn Camp Benefits Auction, Thursday evening Hot Dog and Beverage Bust, Friday morning Coffee Clutch, and Friday evening annual awards banquet.

Education Only Registration - $25. Includes attending the in-service training opportunities. Certificates of attendance will be provide for each class you attend.

Competition Registration - $25 per team. Allows your team to compete in either Fire or EMS challenges showing everyone that your skills and abilities match or exceed that of others. Trophies will be presented for 1st – 2nd – 3rd- and possible last place winners (your team may enter for both Fire and EMS)


The annual awards banquet on Friday night quite possibly could have an overflow, meaning the Ballroom at the Crowne Plaza might not be able to seat all of the attendees. Should this occur we will have an overfill area and we will be seating you by your registration date, filling the Ballroom first followed by the overflow area. We will provide audio and video (and a meal) should this happen to those seated in the overflow room. So, register early to assure you are in the Ballroom and not in overflow.

We are expecting a sellout, so we are looking at adding a second location just minutes away from the Crowne Plaza (currently negotiating pricing).

If you are into camping we have located camp sites about a 20-minute drive from the convention headquarters hotel that has agreed to allow camping for the sweet fee of "free". It is at the Lions Club Park in Clermont, Indiana located very near O'Reilly Raceway Park, where many campers stay during the National Drags in September each year. This is a Township-operated park and the trustee has offered it up for our use. For more information contact Larry Curl at 317-605-6669.
