We hope everyone had a great Fourth of July. The 59th Spring MACPO Conference was another great success this year. We kicked off the three day event with Dr. Jermaine Davis as the Keynote Speaker who taught us to use our GRIT to succeed. A huge thank you to all who attended the conference, we hope you enjoyed all the educational training, fabulous entertainment, and relaxing surroundings of the north woods at Breezy Point. Also, a huge thank you to all the venders who helped make 2016 another successful year.
The 2017 spring conference will be MACPO’s 60th training event. In recognition of our 60 years of training excellence, we are planning some wonderful speakers, special events, prizes and entertainment. We hope to see the 60th MACPO one of the most attended MACPO’s of recent history and hope to see you there. Who knows, you could win some fabulous prizes!!!
Finally, as incoming President I want to thank both Deanna Ruffing and Neal Huemoeller for everything they have taught me this past year. Both continue to be very active in MACPO, with Deanna agreeing to Co-Chair the Training and Education Committee, which is no small task, and Neal working as Past-President. MACPO will be working hard in the upcoming year to not only get ready for the 60th Training Conference, but also on outreach to keep MACPO a leader in Corrections.
