BY Howard Cook, FBINAA Executive Director

Dear Friends,

I am humbled and honored to have been selected to lead the FBI National Academy Associates as the new Executive Director.  As a Graduate of the 224th session, I will bring servant leadership to our Association. I want to thank everyone for your warm welcome. Also, I want thank the national office staff and the board members for their support and assistance in helping me transition into this position. I am fired up about the opportunity to serve our members to a strong sustainable future.  I have worked with many of you throughout my twenty-nine years of law enforcement service in state, municipal, and campus law enforcement agencies.  In addition to working in law enforcement, I have also served on non-profit boards in many capacities from state level associations to international associations from positions of President to Executive Director over the past seventeen years.  I have a proven track record in fundraising, sponsorships, administrative leadership and conference planning.  I look forward to this opportunity to bring new ideas, support, and transparency to our already top-notch Association.

My first orders of business are to get to team build and support our national office staff, continue the implementation of the three year strategic plan, and to jump into our national annual training conference.

I will be approachable and reachable to all of our members and I look forward to the opportunity to meet you if we have not met and to reconnect with all of my old friends.

My office is open to any of you, at any time.


Howard M. Cook

Executive Director
