President's Report

Dear Fellow Members,
I want to start by thanking our Immediate Past President, Laura Downing, for all that she helped us accomplish in 2017.  We had two great conferences, and our trip to the National Conference was a great experience.  I also want to thank the rest of the Executive Board and all that they have done to help our chapter succeed.

In 2018, we have a lot to look forward to.  First is our Spring Retrainer in Asheboro on March 15th.  Our Training Coordinator Alan Melvin and the NC SHP have been working hard to put on another great opportunity for you to meet fellow members and to hear an inspirational message on leadership from Lieutenant General Kenneth Tovo.  We will have a dinner together on Wednesday evening, so if you can attend both, please be sure to register seperately.

This summer, we will be using a new venue for our annual meeting.  The Doubletree in Atlantic Beach will be our host June 9-12, 2018.  We are planning great training and fellowship opportunities again this year.  Stay tuned, but please reserve your rooms early, especially if you plan to stay before or after the conference.

I also want to take this opportunity to tell everyone that I officially retired from my position as a Captain on the Garner Police on September 28, 2017.  After a hiatus and trip to Ecuador, I returned to work part-time for the Garner Police Department as a non-sworn employee on January 2, 2018.  I will be using the extra time afforded me in semi-retirement to visit each district this year, so please look out for announcements of those visits.
