National Training Institute for FPPOA
August 25 - August 28
The FPPOA (Federal Probation & Pretrial Officers Association) national board has planning underway for the upcoming National Training Institute (NTI) scheduled for Sunday, August 25th through Wednesday, August 28th in Tucson, Arizona. If you have attended one of their conferences in the past, you can recall the large amount of impressive presenters that participate, and whose presentations are directly related to the work of federal probation and pretrial officers. Generally, there are several hundred officers in attendance and the networking that officers from all across the country participate in is invaluable. This year’s NTI will be no different. Located at the Marriott Starr Pass resort in Tucson, the southwest scenery, culture, and diverse sessions to chose from will be a conference you will not want to miss. This year, the keynote speaker on Sunday evening is Elizabeth Smart. As many of you may know, she endured a harrowing kidnapping experience in 2002. She will be focusing on the topic of resiliency and we are very excited to hear her message. As additional details are solidified about the NTI, they will be posted on the website (FPPOA.org).
