All strong and effective Associations have a member base that is active and engaged. This has resonated with me as I attended impressive Chapter training events over the past year. It is during these events where you see the real strength of the FBI National Academy Associates. Our members are the lifeblood of this Associa- tion andmake this group of leaders unique and special. We have listened to what you have to say about what’s important to you when it comes to this Association through our discussions at Chapter and training events as well as through surveys and your general feedback. 2019 marked a year of enrichment and impact as we fully embraced our mission of providing law enforce- ment leadership training. I’m sure you have noticed the continual roll out of exceptional Leadership Forums. This annual report provides an overview of this remarkable training we hosted for our members and the law enforcement profession through leadership forums, webinars, and national conference. I am proud of our commitment to develop these relevant and trending leadership education programs. These programs do impact our communities as they reach beyond our membership base, to department command staffs, as well as broader reach to school administrators and organizations in the private sector with our School Shooting Prevention Leadership Forums and Cyber Threat Intelligence Leadership Forum. We continue to put focus and emphasis on officer resiliency with impactful training programs and training resources to address this critical concern. In 2019 the Association launched our newest member engagement tool, the FBINAA CONNECT App with huge success. Members can now fully engage in Association News, Events, Forums, Shop, download resources and stay connected to the FBINAA Network with messaging capabilities to other App users. If you haven’t had a chance, download the App to stay connected to your FBINAA. Please take a moment to read through these pages and see all the accomplishments of 2019. It was a busy year but know that we are building on that momentum for the future of this great Association. Next year will mark the 85th year of the FBI National Academy Program and we have witnessed what a strong a viable pro- gram it is. As alumni, we are stewards of that legacy and continue to work hard to ensure that we carry that responsibility by offering extraordinary training and engaging networking opportunities for our members. I am honored to work for you and our executive board to keep this Association strong and sustainable. I am blessed to work with a dedicated and hard-working staff that keeps striving to accomplish goals that bring a better member experience. I look forward to connecting with you at future Chapter events or training programs. When we come together is when the real magic happens and you see why the FBINAA is the “Strongest Law Enforcement Leadership Network in the World.”
