Election season is once again upon us! It is time for those of you in the Southeast and Northeast Regions to elect your regional presidents. The national officers are also up for election this year (President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer).
Please consider throwing your hat in the ring and being an officer in the only professional organization dedicated solely to Federal Probation and Pretrial Services Officers.
Elections are tentatively scheduled for the second week in November, and are done electronically through FPPOA’s website. You will receive an email when the elections are open. Don’t forget to vote!
Officers wishing to be placed on the ballot should email a letter/statement of interest no later than October 31, 2018 to Eileen_Vodak@wiep.uscourts.gov. The letter should include the position you are running for (if a regional president, please specify which region), a biography with your tenure as a USPO/USPSO/POA, your history of FPPOA membership, previous professional experience, past and present professional affiliations, professional recognitions/awards, and community activities. Please also provide a statement, approximately one page in length, regarding your views on current issues affecting the US Probation System and FPPOA, and any proposals/ideas you would like to see implemented.
If you have any questions regarding the elections or officer responsibilities, please contact Eileen Vodak. Thank you!
