Change in NOTFEA leadership 1/23/2020 -
I remember attending my first NOTFEA conference in 2008. I remember the word “family” used to describe the connections made at the once a year meeting. I have to say that I was skeptical. But, by the time I left four days later, I realized that this organization was something very special indeed. I have to think it is unusual for a person to develop some of the best friendships of a lifetime with people I only see once a year but, that is exactly what happened. I would have never guessed that I would be given the honor of spending the last ten years as the Vice President/President of such an amazing group of professionals. The impact the people I have met at NOTFEA have had on my professional career is immeasurable. Rarely a week goes by that I do not speak about a case with someone I met at a NOTFEA conference.
I have accepted a new position that does not include the investigation of motor vehicle crimes and must step down as President. Based on the organization bylaws, Robert Foster will move up and be your new President. He will be fantastic. I cannot begin to thank the board enough for their hard work and support. They are an amazing group of individuals. I do have to say a very special thank you to Treasurer, Jenny Stanger. Jenny does it all...and then some. She works so hard for the organization, and NOTFEA is blessed to have her.
Thank you for letting me part of an absolutely awesome group. I will sincerely miss my NOTFEA family.
The next NOTFEA conference will be held June 14th-18th, 2020 in Richmond, Virginia.
