Fire Service Women Ontario’s 2019 Symposium & AGM Contest
ATTENTION FIREFIGHTERS & ASPIRING FIREFIGHTERS
Enter for your chance to win free registration and two nights stay to Fire Service Women Ontario’s 2019 SYMPOSIUM & AGM sponsored by Lerners LLP
For the second year in a row, I will be “paying it forward” and sponsoring a person’s registration and accommodations to Fire Service Women Ontario’s Symposium and Annual General Meeting, hosted by Ottawa Fire Services on October 18-20.
FSWO has given me a lot, personally and professionally, and I believe the “pay it forward” initiative is consistent with the organization’s mission statement. Namely, it provides for networking and support to those who may not otherwise have the opportunity.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the “pay it forward” philosophy, the simplest way to define it is that when someone does something for you, instead of paying that person back directly, you “pay it forward” or do a good deed for another person or group of people. Through acts of kindness among strangers, from one person to the next, a ripple effect can ensue and result in more caring and compassionate communities.
I am asking all interested firefighters and aspiring firefighters to “pay it forward” with some sort of deed in their community that is for the benefit of another person or group of people. Lerners LLP takes great interest and pride in supporting first responders and we are proud to sponsor FSWO’s Symposium and AGM again. Our hope is that by giving back to the people who serve our communities, including many of our clients, they will be inspired to do the same. As the saying goes, “Leave this job better than you found it”.
