Conference Spotlight: IACP Programs & Services / Meet the IACP Speakers Series

Are you getting the MOST out of your IACP membership?

For many, IACP membership means an awesome annual conference and a fantastic monthly magazine. We are immensely proud of these great benefits, but the IACP has much more to offer.

Through advocacy, training, research, and professional services, the Association works hard to help our members and their agencies tackle the most pressing issues of the day.   The IACP is staffed by 100+ professionals engaged in a variety of activities, from grant management and research to training and technical assistance, all designed to advance leadership and professionalism in policing.

Find time in your conference schedule to learn more through the new Meet the IACP Speakers Series at the IACP Programs & Services booth (#2425).  Review the schedule below and explore a sample of what the Association has to offer.  These brief presentations are led by IACP subject matter experts and leaders, including Executive Director, Bart Johnson, and incoming President Yousry Zakhary.  Each hour of the day is devoted to a different issue, project, or service of the IACP, so you’re sure to find something of interest. Presentations begin at the top of each hour. Stop by any time during the hour to meet with our speakers, ask questions, offer feedback, and learn more about what the IACP can do for you.

In addition to meeting staff and leaders of the Association, the Programs & Services booth offers a host of IACP-produced resources, guidebooks, and publications, all available at no-cost in hard copy or via USB download.  Name a topic or interest area, and odds are the IACP has a resource to match that need!
