I would like to thank everyone who attended our 25th Anniversary Conference in Edmonton the week of February 17-21,2014. I hope everyone that attended had an excellent experience and enjoyed the hard work that Melanie Glanville and the Executive put into making the conference a success.
There were some notable changes as a result of the AGM. I would like to welcome and introduce your new Executive Team.
Jamie Erickson – President (Kneehill County)
Terri Miller – Vice President (Clearwater County)
William Norton – North East Zone Rep / Website Administrator (Town of Morinville)
Dwight Dawn – North West Zone Rep / Communications Officer (Lac Ste Anne County)
Les Kolibaba – Central Zone Rep (City of Red Deer)
Melanie Glanville – South West Zone Rep (Town of Okotoks)

I would like to take the opportunity to thank the past Executive members who have spent many hours serving our membership.
We will be posting contact information for all the Executive Team shortly.
The membership passed a motion to have the Executive Team compose a Code of Conduct for the Association and this will be done in the next few months with a draft proposal for voting to occur in September.
The dress uniform policy will also be updated to allow any dress uniform at Association functions as well as to allow for rank to be identified on the dress uniform. We would only ask that those members interested in being a part of the Ceremonial Unit to wear the AACPO dress uniform.
I would also like to congratulate the Award winners and Medal recipients for this year.
Award of Excellence recipient :
Shawn Baker (Strathcona County)
20 Year Long Service Medal recipients:
Ken Podoborozny (Town of Vegreville)

The Executive will be working hard over the next few months attending Trade Shows and meetings to further the AACPO standing in the Province of Alberta and I personally look forward to another year as the President of the AACPO.
Thank you and I remain in your service
