PLATINUM ACADEMIC ALLIANCES
T his year has surely been uniquely different. We've all seen challenges personally, professionally and as an Association. What makes us so resilient is our ability to adapt and overcome in times of uncertainty. While many associations have been struggling over the past year, the FBINAA has remained vigilant and strong. We have continued to focus on our members, our mission, and develop creative ways to continue to provide essen- tial value. I would like to take a moment and highlight just a few of the many positive outcomes we have witnessed this year. Stay at home orders across the globe have provided an opportunity for us to increase virtual education and training offerings. Although we couldn't come together for our National Annual Training Conference , we quickly adjusted and came up with alternate ways we could continue to provide cutting-edge training to our members as well as the law enforcement profes- sion with our first ever F BINAA 2020: Connecting Leaders Virtual Leadership Training & Education Event which had an impressive 2,000 participants. You've also seen that we have provided a significant offering of member engagement resources and opportunities by provid- ing more webinars, information on our members only CONNECT App , editorial content in the Associate Magazine, overall commu- nications and launched our new podcast series. We will continue to enhance these capabilities. We have much to be proud of as an Association as we continue to move forward and plan for exceptional education and training opportunities for the new year. We are also moving forward with the planning of the 2021 Annual National Training Conference in Orlando next July and it is our hope to see you all there, in person. We are planning to get back to in-person events with enhanced virtual components but have done our due diligence with contingency plans should the pandemic con- tinue throughout 2021. As part of that planning, I am happy to announce we will also be holding a virtual event in the first half of 2021, along with numerous in-person leadership forums and train-the-trainer programs.

Our goal is to keep our members engaged throughout their law enforcement career and beyond. One way we are address- ing this is to increase our offerings of life after law enforcement offerings through our communications, editorial content, and programming. This will be a priority for us next year. 2021 will be an exciting year of continued growth for the Association. We’re looking forward to hopefully welcoming new NA grads to our network and also providing needed services to all our members – both sworn and retired. I would like to take this moment to thank all of you for your involvement in the FBI National Academy Associates and your numerous contributions to our Association as a whole and to your Chapter. This is such an incredible network and I am truly blessed to be a part of it. While I say it year after year, I could not mean the following sentiments more so than I do now...I wish you all a safe, healthy and happy Holiday Season and all the very, very best in 2021.
