The 2022 IAFE Safety & Security Committee wants to hear from you!

The results will be shared with all IAFE members and act as a guide for future member education.
Complete the survey and provide us with voluntary contact information, and you could receive a $50 IAFE credit!
The drawing will be held at the close of the survey following the 2022 IAFE Annual Convention.
