Last week concluded our 22nd Annual Training Conference in San Marcos and I am very proud of the Board and our members for making the conference one of the most successful on record. We had over 80 attendees with several (13) new members attending. The Board worked tirelessly both before and during the conference which undoubtedly helped lead to its success. A special congratulations to Lt. James Fontenot of the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Department on his recognition of excellent work by becoming the 2014 Tim Kennedy Award winner. Lt. Fontenot’s family and immediate (nominating) supervisor were also in attendance at the ceremony. A special thank you to Capt. Walt Goodson, Lieutenant Matt Hicks, Lieutenant Dennis Westerman, and Agent Matt Mull, all of DPS for providing excellent instruction, logistics, and leadership support during the conference. TALEPI would not be as strong as it is without the continued support of DPS. Agent Matt Mull was elected to a full three year term as a Board Director and Lt. Dennis Westerman was appointed as an Advisory Board Member. Our eyes on these two gentlemen as the future leaders of TALEPI as they continue to perform selfless and professional support to our association.

Remember that June 30th is the deadline for feedback to TDLR on rule revisions. As discussed in our business meeting, we would like feedback from the membership on those issues important to you so that a structured, cohesive, and consistent response can be formulated. Please get those issues to us!

Planning has already begun for the 23rd Annual Training Conference in 2015. The conference will be the week of July 20-24 and again will be that San Marcos Convention Center/Embassy Suites. Advanced Registration for the conference will open October 1, 2014. Please stay tuned to the web page and be watching for emails concerning further details on the conference. Also, if you were unable to attend the 2014 Conference, please do not forget to re-new your membership. You can do this on-line on our web page.

Our success as an association has always been and will continue to be dependent on the membership. I am convinced that there is no better association in Texas than ours. Thank you for all of your feedback and participation.

Robert Young,
