WELCOME MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
On behalf of the Executive Board and the members of our association, I welcome you to our new Web site.
The FBI National Executive Institute Associates (NEIA) is a nonprofit, tax deductible, organization that is open to all graduates of the National Executive Institute (NEI), which has been described as the “crown jewel” of the FBI executive training initiatives. Law enforcement executives who attend the NEI and are members of the NEIA represent the largest federal, state and local law enforcement agencies throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia and South America.
The FBI NEIA’s purpose is to increase the professionalism of law enforcement by providing a learning environment where its members can network, mentor, and share unique executive leadership experiences.
The FBI NEIA is committed to:
1) being a recognized center of excellence in law enforcement education, research and training.
2) providing its members with lifelong opportunities for the free exchange and dissemination of ideas and information as well as professional association with our national law enforcement peers.
With the introduction of our more robust web site members can look forward to more timely and up to date information about their organization. Such will include, though not limited to, our library of member articles and studies as well as a special member’s password protected section. We are currently exploring the use of credit card payments for annual dues and conference registration.
Given the increased importance for the law enforcement profession to stay abreast of emerging threats as well as critical social behavior issues, we ask you that you join us for our annual training conference, held in Sun Valley, Idaho, June 13 – 17, 2012. This year’s theme is “Confronting the Unthinkable”, which will explore the heretofore unknown scenario involving the unthinkable – but virtually inevitable event –a crippling terrorist attack, or even one of nature’s catastrophes within our Nation’s borders.
We are excited about providing this opportunity for you and your colleagues to participate and provide input on this thought-provoking and important issue: How would the law enforcement community deal with a catastrophe that can only be described as “unthinkable”. In addition to our exciting and informative presentations, we are introducing a research work series in which active and retired FBI NEIA members and other subject matter experts will be invited to participate. June 13 – 17 is shaping up as one of our more exciting, informative and somewhat novel training conferences. I encourage my fellow members to save the date and plan to be with us.
