The success of most professional associations is due to participation of its membership.  I have been an active member of IACP since 2006, attending CCH and a supporter of First Fund.  I like the leadership we have currently and their decision to hire Executive Director, Cynthia Blankenship. If voted, to a position on the IACP Board, I can assure you I will be an active participant on this board and will do my best in decision making for IACP and our membership.
