As we head towards the end of another year and 30 years of CAHN behind us; I am thankful and honored to be part of such an amazing organization. For those of you who were able to attend the CAHN Conference in Monterey this year, you attended one of the best conferences in recent years as remarked by the attendees. I want to thank all of you for attending, all of the wonderful presenters who shared their expertise, our past CAHN Presidents our NCNA representatives who enhanced the experience of the overall conference and the CAHN Board members who worked tirelessly to put on such an amazing training.  Planning and preparation has already begun for our 2020 Conference at the Hyatt in Orange County, Ca.  So more to come on that throughout the year.

Please keep in mind as we will be holding our annual elections at the beginning December for CAHN Board positions. Your votes will be an important determining factor where and how future conferences are run. So, continue to remain diligent in selecting our board members as they represent you.

This year during the conference we covered various types of topics regarding not only negotiations but also our profession as a law enforcement community. The conversation of resilience and emotional survival for ourselves and partners seemed to be an underlying theme.    The job that all of you are doing is becoming more and more difficult as you navigate this ever-changing environment and societal expectations for this profession.  The stories of police officers or first responders who suffer in silence are often missed until it is too late.  All I ask is that as you continue to do your jobs daily, continue to be mindful of the effects of the daily stressors on you and your partners.  Be safe.

Till we meet again,

Vinny Ginda
