AFSA AGM and Spring Conference

This month we are looking forward to attending the Asian Fire Service Association’s (AFSA) AGM and Spring Conference.  The focus of the event this year is valuing diversity and fostering community engagement and will be held at West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service’s HQ in Birkenshaw.

SCE Solicitors has been involved with AFSA for nearly a year and we are excited to attend another conference and play an active role.  This will however be our first AFSA AGM.  The format of the conference involves a mixture of leading speakers and interactive workshops, with a key emphasis about the development for members. 

Last year in November we attended the AFSA Annual Conference and sponsored the award for Champion of Equality and Diversity (which went to Katie Cornhill of Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service for her accomplishments).  We really enjoyed the two-day event and gained great value from meeting the members.

We also received fantastic feedback from the workshop that we delivered providing our top tips for avoiding employment tribunal claims, with a focus on discrimination.  The vast majority of attendees thought that it was very relevant to their needs and all delegates said that they would recommend the workshop to their colleagues.

Delegates found the case studies and interactive group discussions the most enjoyable part of our workshop with one person stating it was “very engaging and surprising cases and points to note.  Lots to think about”.  Another said, “questioning my knowledge, beliefs and understanding”.

We hope we can live up to expectations and deliver another thought provoking and engaging workshop.  This time our topic will be managing difficult conversations in the workplace.

    Commercial disputes are becoming increasingly commonplace, and therefore it is essential that businesses obtain strategic advice as soon as possible in any dispute so that they can minimise the impact on the business.

    Generally speaking, the law takes the view that a contract is formed between parties when one party makes an offer to another who accepts the offer. The parties have to be certain as to the terms of the contract, there has to be an intention to create a contract and there has to be ‘consideration’ i.e. there has to be some value.
