    Message from the President

    Greetings fellow graduates.

    On behalf of myself and the Board of Directors I wish you and your family a Happy New Year.
    As I assume my new role as your 2020 President, I want to say how proud I am to be part of such a prestigious
    and important association. Our network of resources and contacts have made us one of the most powerful and
    far-reaching organizations in the world and it is an honor and privilege for me to be part of this gracious and
    caring order.

    My hope for this year is that we all reach farther to serve and to provide the very best in community support,
    law enforcement training, and outreach to our retirees. We have a responsibility as members of this
    organization to do great things with our skills, knowledge, talents and instincts.

    I am asking all our Area Representatives to seek out opportunities whereby we become actively engaged in
    community chapter projects. For example, we can and should be asking community leaders to join us as a
    partner and supporter for youth leadership development opportunities, and for the families of law enforcement
    officers who have lost their life in the line of duty.

    Perhaps we can ask our retirees to become Outreach Organizers and coordinate with our Area Representatives
    in ways that represent our fundamental goals. For example, reaching out to those members who have become
    inactive.

    Also, your input and support is critical to our success and it is what drives us to stay current and progressive. I
    invite each of you to reach out to the Board Members and/or the Area Representatives and let us know what
    more we can do for you. It is it is our job to bring about new projects for the Board to consider and manage,
    and we need your ideas.

    As your 2020 President it is my sincere hope to continue the momentum of enthusiasm and creativity we have
    shown in past years. Our accomplishments as an organization is recognized nationally as leaders and pace
    setters for other chapters. Our passion for success unites us as a body to meet the needs of our membership.
    I am looking forward to this next year and I hope that you will join me along the way. Let’s make a difference
    in someone’s life and give back a bit of what has been given us.


    Thank you,
    Mike Hardee,
    2020 President
