Association Perspective continued from page 4
Before I close, I want to take a moment to recognize the first re- sponders and every day citizens who reacted in the wake of Hurricane’s Harvey, Irma, and Maria. I’d also like to take a moment to remember Sergeant Steve Perez , 210th session, who lost his life responding dur- ing Hurricane Harvey. Although the events have fallen from the front pages, the devastation left behind in the wake of these storms continues to impact many today. And lastly, our newest members to join our Association are an impressive bunch. Those of us who were able to attend the National Conference in DC got to see that first hand. With volunteers running short on a few of the events, members of the 269th session volunteered their time and came up to the conference to fill in wherever they were needed. They followed up with acting as tour guides to the FBI Acad- emy for those that made the welcome home event. During graduation, their elected class speaker Marco Gonzalez , of the New York City Police Department delivered a powerful speech to his session mates on family, profession, and mission. I can assure you all, our future is bright.
With every event I attend, and every new member I meet, reinforces our vision of continuous development of the world’s strongest law enforcement network. There is nothing that can’t be accomplished by a dedicated group of men and women committed to serve. Thank you for choosing the profession you have chosen.
Be safe, be strong, be vigilant, and be proud!
Scott A. Dumas President FBI NAA, Session #226 Rowley, Massachusetts Police Department
