  • The International Association of Fire Chiefs and the Virginia Fire Chiefs Association proudly partner to bring this valuable learning opportunity to the Northern Virginia region. Please join us for this one-day workshop presented by Michael Mirarchi. Light continental breakfast, lunch and snacks are included in the registration fee.


    Reset The Clock:  A process that prevents a plaintiff attorney from taking something leaders did wrong or did not do and using it to challenge future employee relations decisions that they make. Past events cannot be used to support future legal claims. In effect, both employer and personal liability clocks are reset.


    Housing Options:

    *The IAFC has a preferred corporate rate with Hyatt Place Chantilly/Dulles Airport-South. Ask for the IAFC corporate rate #CR112353 when contacting the hotel directly.


    Synopsis:

    A continuing challenge facing fire departments is staying litigation-free. Compliance training programs provide only a partial solution.

    As a result of losing more lawsuits than they won after the EEO laws came into effect, employers adopted compliance training programs. They began to win more lawsuits than they lost. But they still had plenty of lawsuits because the focus of compliance is on “what not to do.”

    This program focuses on “what to do.” It provides a leadership framework that concentrates on what matters:  Attendance - Performance - Conduct.

    Objectives:

    In this highly interactive and entertaining program specifically designed for leaders in fire service, an extensive array of employee relations scenarios are covered. Situation-specific advice is provided:

    • Effective employee relations practices that minimize department and personal liability.
    • Scripted responses to use in sensitive employee relations situations.
    • How to avoid hearing “You should have anticipated this” after an avoidable legal claim.

    Leaders gain skill and increased confidence in handling employee relations situations that, while difficult and uncomfortable, must be addressed carefully to prevent legal problems.

    Results:

    Outside attorney intervention and court review of business decisions are minimized.  Bad publicity and public embarrassment are avoided.  Liability is replaced with credibility.  Department and personal assets are protected.


    Presenter: 

    Michael J. Mirarchi is recognized as a leading expert in employment‐related lawsuit prevention. As an Employee Relations Counselor, he is dedicated to helping employers stay litigation‐free.

    Drawing from over 30 years of experience in employment and labor law, as an employer defense attorney and as a Human Resources Vice President, he developed a unique litigation‐avoidance program. He has presented his “Reset the Clock” program over 1,200 times to more than 28,000 leaders at employer facilities across North America.

    He has delivered this program to Departments of Public Safety (Fire & Police), police departments, fire service and law enforcement associations (IAFC, IACP) across the U.S. Through it, leaders in fire service and law enforcement acquire significantly increased practical knowledge and a higher level of confidence in addressing employee relations issues than they have ever had before.

    Mr. Mirarchi believes that the vast majority of leaders in fire service and law enforcement want to exercise their abilities with fairness, integrity and professionalism. Nevertheless, if you lead people long enough, there are plenty of opportunities to run into potential liability situations. In these situations, leaders who know what to do and how to do it have a tremendous advantage over those who don’t, in avoiding lawsuits.

    In 2013, Mike was recognized as the first inductee into the HRSouthwest Conference Speaker Hall of  Fame.  Over  the  last  25  years,  he  has  consistently  been  one  of  the  highest‐rated  speakers, excelling in content, professionalism and delivery. In conjunction with various employer, industry and professional associations, he has conducted live TV broadcasts, webinars and on‐line employee relations programs, in addition to presenting at their regional and national conferences.

    Mr. Mirarchi has a B.S. in Business Administration and a Law Degree from Seton Hall University.

  • Email-writing Workshop in Washington D.C.

    How to write e-zines and email blasts

    Workshop Agenda

    4,300%.


    That’s the average ROI on email marketing, according to the Direct Marketing Association. And that, says Inc., is a better return than for any other marketing channel.


    But that return is an opportunity — not a promise. And taking advantage of that opportunity isn’t easy. Email has some built-in problems that make it easy to annoy, rather than convert, subscribers:

    • American professionals receive an average of 121 emails a day. (Radicati)
    • Of those, an average of 276 emails remain unread in inboxes at any given time. That’s a 300% increase in unread emails in just four years. (Nielsen Norman Group)
    • If they do open your message, people spend an average of just 11.1 seconds on each email they review. (Litmus) That’s enough time to read about 37 words.
    • People read some 54% of emails on mobile devices. (Litmus) That’s an issue, because mobile reading reduces everything from comprehension to clicks.


    In this environment, how do get the word out via email? In this workshop, you will learn how to:

    • Get opened. Learn best practices for the three email elements that users use to decide whether to open your message — or delete it without clicking.
    • Get read. Avoid the No. 1 reason readers unsubscribe. (Lyris)
    • Get clicked. Walk away with 7 steps for writing links that increase clicks.
    • Get shared. Email remains the No. 1 sharing channel. (Chadwick, Martin, Bailey) Learn to write messages that go viral.

  • Email-writing Workshop in Washington D.C.

    How to write e-zines and email blasts

    Workshop Agenda

    4,300%.


    That’s the average ROI on email marketing, according to the Direct Marketing Association. And that, says Inc., is a better return than for any other marketing channel.


    But that return is an opportunity — not a promise. And taking advantage of that opportunity isn’t easy. Email has some built-in problems that make it easy to annoy, rather than convert, subscribers:

    • American professionals receive an average of 121 emails a day. (Radicati)
    • Of those, an average of 276 emails remain unread in inboxes at any given time. That’s a 300% increase in unread emails in just four years. (Nielsen Norman Group)
    • If they do open your message, people spend an average of just 11.1 seconds on each email they review. (Litmus) That’s enough time to read about 37 words.
    • People read some 54% of emails on mobile devices. (Litmus) That’s an issue, because mobile reading reduces everything from comprehension to clicks.


    In this environment, how do get the word out via email? In this workshop, you will learn how to:

    • Get opened. Learn best practices for the three email elements that users use to decide whether to open your message — or delete it without clicking.
    • Get read. Avoid the No. 1 reason readers unsubscribe. (Lyris)
    • Get clicked. Walk away with 7 steps for writing links that increase clicks.
    • Get shared. Email remains the No. 1 sharing channel. (Chadwick, Martin, Bailey) Learn to write messages that go viral.

    Sacred  Chambers  
    for Healing and Transformation


    What is the Sacred Chambers ?
     
    The Sacred Chambers is a phenomenon that started in India in the summer of 2013 when ordinary people all over India reported spontaneous miracles.   This phenomenon is part of the awakening of humanity which is making it possible for the Divine in its various forms to help people in their day to day life.
     
    Here is a video you can watch about the Sacred Chambers:
     

    There are approximately 150 Sacred Chambers around the world, 40 of which are in the US and Canada.

    The Sacred Chambers is free and open to everyone without regard to religious beliefs or spiritual path.   There is no prior knowledge or experience required. The Sacred Chambers is your Divine reaching out to you.

    Miracles
     
    The following miracles have been reported by people who have been in the Sacred Chambers serving Metro DC.  If you have experienced a Chambers miracle that you would like to share please email Elizabeth at xibic@msn.com.
     
    " This is my story about my first Sacred Chamber experience.  I was invited by a friend and I was a little nervous as everything was new.  As I sat quietly in the Second Chamber, what came to me is that "deep secreds wuld be revealed." I expected that the "secret" was related to my ongoing emotional healing process from traumas of the past.  I was eagerly waiting for the revelation of this mysetery "secret".
     
    About a month went by and I had some disturbing physical sumptoms that promted me to see my doctor....I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer....and I had a hystorectomy.   The doctors found no cancer where they expected to find it....that was a miracle but there was another miracle...they found a very aggressive cancer in my ovary.  This cancer was discovered in its very early stages because of the surgery for a cancer that could not be found.  I believe that the ovarian cancer was the "secret" that was going to be revealed....the secred was given to me wrapped in Love and this Love continues to be present in every moment".,,,,MT
     
    "My first Sacred Chamber experience was very profound.  There was no expectation on my part, but I was hoping to have my recently prior 20/20 vision restored after losing most of my vision during a health crisis that lasted many months.  While driving 3.5 hours in the back seat of a car carrying four people to get to the Sacred Chambers, I couldn't really see what was going on outside the car windows and was asking whether it was snowing, etc.  People had been kind enough for several months to drive me wherever I needed and wanted to go, but it was so difficult to lose my independence so quickly.  After coming out of the Sacred Chambers, while by MacVx" rel="nofollow"> by MacVx" rel="nofollow"> by MacVx" rel="nofollow"> by MacVx" rel="nofollow"> by MacVx" rel="nofollow"> by MacVx" rel="nofollow"> by MacVx" rel="nofollow"> by MacVx" href="#11590054"> sharing our experience, it became noticeable that my sight was returning quickly as I could see eagles flying in circles over the home.  In the car on the way home, while sitting in the back seat, I was the first one to be able to read the road signs in the dark, and discovered that my vision was restored during the Sacred Chambers.  It was dramatic and profound, and gave me back my independence and quality of life.  My vision has continued to be as good as that day for the months since my visit to the Sacred Chambers.  Gratitude is with me all the time."  MH
     
    "I didn't know if anything happened when I first came of the Chambers and after sharing that and a few other things that did happen with our group, I felt relieved only to then have an old feeling of fear creep in when I spoke to my husband about doing the Chambers himself to which he uncharacteristically said "no thanks".  When I got home there was no fear left in my or guild or shame given to him about his choice.  I was able to share my experience and then hear him clearly when he said he had talked to our friend whose whife had passed that morning and that it had brought up stuff for him.  I was shocked that I was able to purely and cleanly show up for my husband...this time I didn't hav to fake it till I could make make...I was there and was able to show with peace and love to everyone, with a lack of judgement...this is huge for me."  HD
