This year our featured Conference presentation is “9/11: Leadership Before and After the Crisis,” given by Chief Jay Jonas, a Deputy Chief in the New York City Fire Department taking place on Tuesday, June 12. Jonas was one of the first responders to the attacks on the twin towers. After helping rescue many trapped citizens on upper floors of the building, Jonas and his crew were exiting the building when the tower collapsed on top of them. He was one of only 20 people who survived that collapse of the second tower. Come listen to this empowering speech of how the events of that day unfolded.
