F B I N A A . O R G | J A N / M A R 2 0 2 1
W ell, it looks like we are finally turning the corner. With 2020 fading frommemory, I am excited about the oppor- tunities that lie ahead for the FBINAA in 2021. We took advantage of a daunting situation last year and developed new ways of virtually engaging and communicating with you, our members. This year looks to continue our successful virtual programs. However, the live, face-to-face events always raise the level of interaction and education and I look forward to seeing you at those events soon! Let’s take a look at a few upcoming meetings for the year… As an Association it is important to continue to meet and collaborate with FBINAA Chapter officers. Although this year will look a little different to ensure we are safely meeting, the Chap- ter Engagement Zenith will happen outside of Quantico the last week of March. This event gives us an opportunity to plan for the year and future. We’re also excited to host another virtual education and training event in May, FBINAA 2021: REBUILDING COMMUNITIES where the impressive line-up of speakers will be discussing strat- egies for today and tomorrow. The number of live training events and Chapter Retrainers are growing. Physical touch points are critical to reach our goals in supporting our members and to continue to provide educa- tion and training. I have thoroughly enjoyed the events I have attended so far this year and look forward to seeing you all at future Chapter events happening throughout the year. I am happy to report that execution of our business goals by the Association remains strong. The Association staff is working diligently both virtually and in the Quantico office to support our members, especially during the busy membership renewal. Additionally, the FBINAA members-only “CONNECT” App continues to be enhanced with new features and functionality to provide our members an easy way to stay up-to-date with your session, colleagues, events, forums, training, resources, Chapters and the Association.
Thank you all for your membership and participation in the Association. Our goal remains to keep the FBINAA the strongest organization possible to support our active and retired members of our law enforcement leadership family. I am honored to lead the Association in its mission for 2021 and beyond. In closing, I would like to remind you that the 2020 Annual Report is available on the FBINAA website.
