Building the Momentum

Dear Fellow Alumni,Don Lupo

The summer has brought many changes.  SAC Maley is now the Inspector General of South Carolina and ASAC Fletcher has retired and moved to Texas. We embrace the changes and we look forward to great times under our new SAC, who will be arriving in November..

Make plans to come to RANGE DAY on October 11 and meet our new SAC.

It seems funny to write October. Where has this year gone? Your FBI CAAA has had a wonderful and busy year. I hope you will take the time to look at the events and the gallery to see all the great things your alumni association has done.

The Fall 2012 Citizens Academy class is underway in Birmingham. The class is comprised of 28 of the city’s best business, civic and community leaders. I know many of these people personally and am proud to welcome them to the FBI Citizens Academy. We look forward to them joining our ranks in the Alumni Association when they graduate.

Heather White and I just returned from the National Leadership Congress in Denver. We had a great trip and many opportunities to network with FBI CAAA members from 56 chapters from across America. I can tell you that our chapter ranks up there with the best. You can be proud of all of the activities that we are involved in.

One of the action items you will be hearing about shortly is HEROES BEHIND the BADGE. Your alumni association will be bring to a local theater this beautiful and thought provoking motion picture. It will be a night you will not want to miss.
Stay tuned to our website for more information.

One of the items that all chapters struggle with is retention of members and the funds that it takes to make a chapter run. We will have over 100 members by the end of the year. 2012 will be our most successful year in membership since we started. However, we know we can’t do all we plan or need to do with our membership dues only.

Our Fundraising Committee and the Board of Directors are planning our first golf tournament. You are going to hear a lot about THE LEO golf tournament over the next few months. Mark April 15, 2013 on your calendar. Come play golf or volunteer on that day and let’s raise some money for THE FALLEN OFFICERS FUND and for your FBI CAAA.

2012 is almost over and 2013 promises to be an even better year for the FBICAAA.  Please let me encourage you to join us. Pay your dues and enjoy all the benefits of full membership. As always, I want to remind you to adopt our mission statement. We all want to strive to make our Nation safer together.
