A Message from the President January 2024

02 Jan 2024 11:09 AM | Christopher Huys (Administrator)

Happy Holidays and Seasons Greetings to all of my FBICAAA Family!!

Hope you and yours are doing well.

In what is our 17th year, it is my honor to address all of you as the incoming President for the FBICAAA.  I follow in the footsteps of the incredible Jennifer Cofer who led our organization these past 2 years in unprecedented ways by providing her guidance, expertise and leadership skills with a myriad of community projects and opportunities. I think each new person in this role wants to start with a solid foundation and I am committed to making sure that the accomplishments, accolades and momentum achieved under Jennifer’s tenure continue to grow under my direction.

I also want to give a huge “SHOUT OUT” to our “ Huntsville Team” that continues to support us in numerous ways and now with the multi-billion-dollar capital investment for the FBI’s 2nd Headquarters at Redstone Arsenal it is just the major step needed for us to reach our full potential.

Our new Board will be convening in January 2024 and I have some pretty lofty goals with regards to fundraising that I think can be accomplished if we all make a “personal commitment” to support this organization.

Three Strategic Areas Are:

  • 1.     F/Fundraising……Financial sustainability is what I would like to focus on so that as we engage in various projects throughout the year that require financial support we don’t cause any unnecessary strain on our reserves.
  • 2.     B………………………Bring any and all great ideas/suggestions/recommendations to the Board so that we can discuss them in length to determine which ones will best assist us in serving our community stakeholders.
  • 3.     I……………………….Important to always remember one of the key focal points of the FBICAAA is  “to promote public safety and security through community engagement, education and service initiatives”. As everyone is aware, there have been several local as well as world-wide events that serve as constant reminders of how now, more than ever, we need to be ever vigilant and ready to support our Partners in Law Enforcement.

Each of us plays a role in ensuring that the mission of the FBICAAA is upheld at every opportunity possible and we are very fortunate to have now in place Birmingham SAC Carlton Peeples who has encouraged this organization to take a more active role in assisting him and the local office in promoting positive community initiatives.

As we move into 2024, I also want to personally challenge each of you to reach out to any Alum that you know and inquire if they are active and if not, encourage them to renew their membership on an Annual or even better, Lifetime basis. The Board is committed to providing activities to keep you engaged, programs to keep you trained and partnership opportunities to help build safer communities through Servant Leadership and we look forward to strategizing on ways to help us accomplish all of these goals.
