NATIONAL OFFICE UPDATE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
F B I N A A . O R G | Q 2 2 0 2 2
If there was ever a time we need spiritual guidance, that time is now. Just as it seems we are emerging from one crisis, another develops. As COVID abates, war emerges. Please pray for our col - leagues and FBINA graduates all over the world, especially now for our friends and their families in Ukraine. The FBINAA Charitable Foundation stands at the ready to assist members in need. Finally, I’ll finish with another President Roosevelt quote, “We can best prove our thankfulness to the Almighty by the way in which on this earth and at this time each of us does his duty to his fellow men.” I am proud to say that I have witnessed this “duty” in the actions of many FBINA graduates. Continue to be proud of your accomplishments and your contributions to law enforce - ment in all forms. I cannot adequately express how truly blessed I am to have your support and friendship over the past eight years. Thank you!
F rom COVID-19 to storms to civil unrest, it has been a LONG two years for law enforce - ment executives. Does the cur- rent budgetary and regulatory climate leave you frustrated and exhausted? Are recruit - ment and retention issues grinding you down? Do you and your staff feel underappre - ciated, despite your agency’s commitment and loyalty to your community? Now’s the time to remove obstacles, re- think processes, and embrace change to move public safety forward.
Join your fellow NA grads at this year’s 58th National Annual Training Conference in Cleveland and learn why the FBINAA Conference is the highlight of the year for our members and profession. Expand your network as you exchange ideas with fellow NA session mates and grads. Gain insight into trends and pitfalls, find innovative vendor solutions, and ask questions of expert speakers. You’ll leave Cleveland inspired, energized, and ready to take on the challenges of today—and tomorrow. Our co-host Ohio Chapter and the FBINAA Training Committee has put together a world-class agenda. This year’s National Annual Training Conference features six keynote presentations that include Jocko Willink , CEO and Co-Founder of Echelon Front, Commissioner Keechant Sewell , NYPD, FBINA Graduate Session 235, Christopher Wray , FBI Director, 23 educational breakout sessions, 50+ sponsors, and 160+ exhibitors. Not to mention the hours of networking and social events for you and your family. We hope you’ll be able to join us in Cleveland! This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the opening of the new FBI Academy at Quantico. This also commemorates 40 years of the Yellow Brick Road, 29 years of the FBINAA National Office headquartered at the National Academy, and 24 years of the Youth Leadership Program (YLP) – our crown jewel! Along with the National Academy Unit staff, we will continue to celebrate and memorialize this milestone throughout the year through this publication, other member communications, and at Conference. The formal celebration will be scheduled in October. Keep your calendars open.
