A Look Ahead to 2020
2019 has been an exciting year! Both the spring and fall conferences were well attended with over 100 officers in attendance at each event. These officers came from all across the state representing more than 40 different agencies.
Next year, we hope to build upon our success by expanding our presence throughout the area. Efforts are underway to go from two to six events. We will continue to have both the full-day conferences in the spring and fall, but add four half-day workshops. These will be smaller events with a very limited capacity, but they will offer an opportunity for more group interaction as we work to build relationships and learn from one another.
This year, the Lord has richly provided all we needed, plus more, and we fully anticipate him to do so again this year. Stay tuned for more announcements in our upcoming newsletters!
