Associate Magazine - FBINAA - Q3-2022

A nother memorable National Annual Training Conference has come and gone. The 58th National Annual Training Conference in Cleveland was a great success at an incredible venue, outstanding educational sessions, networking, and social events. I applaud the Host Committee, Ohio Chapter , Eventive Group , and the National Team for executing an extraordinary event. A special thank you goes to this year’s Sponsors and Exhibitors who made the Conference a special and historic event. We had a record number of sponsors and exhibitors join us in Cleveland. As with every Conference, there’s the prestigious recogni tion of the new National Board members. We thank Ken Truver for his service as President and look forward to working with him in his new role as Past-President. We welcome Tim Braniff as our new Association President and congratulate Steve Hrytzik as being elected as the Section IV Representative. We will miss the leadership of Joe Hellebrand as he transitions off the National Board. We thank current and past National Board members for their leadership and commitment to the Association and our members. As I reflect on our accomplishments over the last 18 months, there are two common themes to our successes. These themes are stewardship and servanthood. The same integral themes and responsibilities in our roles as law enforcement executives. As I have mentioned in a previous communication to our mem bers, as stewards, we are accountable for sustainable growth and member engagement. Our responsibility at the member, Chapter, and National levels, is to provide our members with NATIONAL OFFICE UPDATE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Howard Cook

timely assistance that reflects and supports the mission and vision of the FBINAA. That said, our mission is not to react with a message every time an incident happens in our world. We move and adjust to our environment by provid ing pertinent leadership train ing, services, and assistance as needed by our members. As you read this issue, let’s honor and celebrate the lives

of those members that are listed in the 2022 FBINAA Memory Roll on pages 16-17. Please take a moment to thank and reflect on those individuals, their families, friends, session mates, and departments. Let’s celebrate and honor their memory.

Stay safe, stay well...
