As a graduate of Session #226 in September 2006 and candidate for the FBI National Academy Associates Section I Representative, I respectfully request your support and vote at the 2015 National Conference in Seattle this July. Like most of you, throughout my career I have expe- rienced the greatness and gratitude of our profession and what we can accomplish when we all work toward a com- mon goal. There is no other organization I have witnessed or been a part of in my 32-year career that demonstrates the ability of law enforcement leaders working together to build a stronger and more vibrant association. While attending the National Academy I was a Captain with the Washington State Patrol. I retired after twenty- five years of service to the state of Washington in February 2011 and was appointed as the Undersheriff for the Thur- ston County Sheriff’s Office. I currently serve on several boards and committees within my community and belong to various service clubs. While most of us belong to multiple organizations, groups, and associations, nothing is more unique than the NA affiliation and network. Spending 10 weeks with law enforcement leaders from around the United States and international was one of the most significant junctures of my career. I have yet to cross paths with any graduate that doesn’t feel the same way. I have been extremely blessed to work for leaders who value the National Academy Associates, it’s training, guid- ance, and leadership development to support my involve- ment. I have been an active member in the Washington Chapter and with other various NA committees since 2006. As I complete the second year of my term as Chapter Presi- dent, I am very proud of our members and the work being done in Washington State. I am very fortunate to be a part of an active chapter working to be an integral part of the law enforcement leadership and development throughout the northwest. I believe our National Executive Board has a tremen- dous amount of responsibility and accountability to provide service to over 17,000 NA Graduates. I will be dedicated to that initiative. I am committed to help strengthen com- munications between the chapters and the national office and to provide the best guidance, leadership, and direction through training, best practices, and tangible assets for our members. I feel this can be achieved through the use of net- working and technology. I am committed to bringing forth new and innovative ideas and suggestions to ensure the board hears the issues, shares the issues, and collectively resolve the issues. Finally, l want to develop new ways to communicate the successes and challenges to maintain consistency with- out compromising ingenuity and creativity. This is our opportunity to celebrate the successes of the past and build on the future. If you want to share your thoughts, I can be reached at branift@co.thurston.wa.us. I would appreciate your support and VOTE.
