FBI NEIA/MCC MEETING AT SAN DIEGO
– SEPTEMBER 28 – OCT 1, 2012
As usual both of our organizations held a meeting within a much larger meeting, the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference. The Major Cities Chiefs meeting was well attended and from all appearances held an excellent “governing” meeting and some special guest speakers. Among the speakers were the president of the National Conference of Mayors, Mayor Michael Nutter of Philadelphia who gave an elegant presentation of what needs to be done to save or improve our cities, schools and service infrastructure. The talk was not only informative but inspirational as well. Another speaker was Chief of Aurora Colorado, Dan Oates who gave the restricted audience a briefi ng on the tragic theater massacre that took 12 lives and wounded 58 others. Our traditional winter reception drew several hundred NEIA, MCC, Federal offi cials and invited guests, including FBI Deputy Director, Sean Joyce, who made a brief speech pledging the Bureau’s support and cooperation with local law enforcement as well as the FBI NEIA..
Another highlight of the reception was the presentation of an award to Nita Wright, NEIA Conference Director, for her many years of dedicated and loyal service. Nita’s initial law enforcement experience began in 1976 when she joined the Salt Lake City police department as a support person and retired in 2003 as Administrative assistant to the Chief of Police. During and subsequent to Nita’s retirement she served as the Conference Director as well as the NEIA’s Executive Board Secretary for twenty four years. Our organization is not labor intensive. All of us are expected to multi task. People must have wondered how Nita could handle the multi needs of conference planning that she did so well for so many years. Well Nita and her husband Mike had a lot of “conference” experience at home with a family of nine children, twenty eight grandchildren and seventeen great grandchildren. Nita has said that she “will greatly miss all of the wonderful friends I have had over the years with the Major Cities Chiefs and the National Executive Institute Associates”. Nita will be retiring from the association at the end of the year and will be sorely missed.
The FBI NEIA board met with full attendance including our newest members, Sheriff Richard Stanek, President of the Major County Sheriffs, board members Paul Pastor and Terry Hillard, conducting a full and somewhat comprehensive meeting covering a number of topics, i.e. training at next year’s conference at Grapevine, Texas. A number of interesting topics and potential speakers surfaced for future consideration. Other issues discussed were appointing an International Liaison officer to the board, fundraising activities, etc.
