  • Board of Directors Call for Nominations Period is Now Open

    Please see the following message on behalf of Immediate Past President Chief Randy Burba:

    Dear IACLEA members, 

    The Association's goal in the nomination and election process is to produce an effective volunteer leadership team. The Board supports an open nomination process to infuse the Association with new leadership while simultaneously maintaining continuity and insight into the Association's needs and functions.  A further goal of this process is to ensure Board representation that reflects membership diversity.

    The nominating process begins with you, the membership. We ask you to contribute by identifying individuals with outstanding potential for leadership roles in our Association. Your suggestions will provide the basis for the Leadership Development Committee's deliberations.

    The nominating process and elections are critical to the long-term success of the Association. Based on your nominations, the Leadership Development Committee will develop a slate of candidates for President-Elect, Director-At-Large, several Regional Director positions.  As you think about individuals whom you'd like to nominate, please consider the following recommended criteria for each position.

    President-Elect Nominee: The President-Elect shall assist the President in the administration of the Association; oversee the progress of all Association committees; and shall perform such duties as are delegated and assigned by the President or the Board of Directors. The President-Elect shall also perform the duties of President in the event that the President is unable to serve.
    Candidates nominated must be Institutional Representatives who have completed or will be completing two years of service on the Board of Directors. The President-Elect shall serve for a term of one year; however, this is a three-year commitment; one year as President-Elect, one year as President, and one year as Immediate Past President.

    Director-At-Large:  Directors shall serve for a term of three years or until their successors have been elected and assume office. Candidates for the position of Director shall be Institutional Representatives in good standing for a minimum of two consecutive years before being elected.
    Individuals who are members in good standing at one institution but change their place of employment to another institution which is, or becomes, an Institutional Member of the Association, will not lose eligibility or tenure as a member in good standing as it relates to director positions held in the Association.

    Current terms in the following regions will be expiring: Canada, International, Mid-Atlantic, and Mountain Pacific.  While Regional Directors may be eligible for re-election, members will also have the opportunity to nominate individuals for these positions.

    Regional Directors: Regional Directors shall serve for a term of three years or until their successors have been elected and assume office.
    Candidates for the position of Regional Director shall be Institutional Representatives in good standing for a minimum of two consecutive years before being elected. Regional Directors who change their place of employment to another institution outside of the region from which they were elected will no longer be eligible to serve as the Regional Director. However, such Regional Directors shall not lose tenure as a Board member as it relates to eligibility for time served on the Board to qualify for officer positions in the Association.

    Your input is important. Please carefully consider members who you would like to see in leadership positions.  Before submitting their names, contact them to be sure that they would be willing to serve if nominated and elected.  For the officer positions of President-Elect, in particular, acceptance of nomination implies a willingness to make a significant commitment of time and energy to the Association.   

    If you have questions about what is required of someone who becomes a board member, I encourage you to contact any current or former board members to get their insights.    

    To nominate an individual, click on the following link to access the form:

    Submissions need to be received via the form above no later than Friday, February 9, 2018.


    Thank you,

    Randy Burba

  • Trauma Informed Sexual Assault Investigations

    As part of IACLEA's expanded training program, IACLEA will provide Sexual Assault on Campus: A Trauma Informed Response training in January 2018, in three locations:

    Tempe, Arizona (at Arizona State University, January 9-10) (Instructors: Jim Markey and Josh Bronson)

    New Orleans, Louisiana (at Tulane University, January 11-12) (Instructors: Jim Markey and Josh Bronson)

    Washington, DC (at American University, January 18-19) (Instructors: Dave Thomas and Josh Bronson)

    The curriculum for the 1 ½ day training will address:
    - the science of trauma and how it impacts victims
    - how to obtain information from victims who may be experiencing the effects of trauma
    - investigative strategies, including discussing consent
    - understanding Title IX, including the future of Title IX, and how to work with campus entities on investigations and resolution.

    The training is designed for sworn and non-sworn officers of both public and private, two-year and four-year institutions. Your local police partners are also welcome to attend. Space is limited so sign up now!

    Please invite your campus Title IX coordinator, too (Note: Title IX staff can attend as long as a representative of the police/public safety department also attends as the training is not designed for Title IX staff, however IACLEA recognizes the importance of collaboration which is why they may also benefit from the class.).

    The training cost is $249 for IACLEA members and $395 for non-members. All police/public safety staff at a member institution can register at the IACLEA member rate.

    As an added bonus for attending this training, you will receive automatic one-year membership in IACLEA’s new investigator section ($50 value) that launches in January 2018. Section membership benefits include: dedicated training on a variety of topics important to investigators, information-sharing among agencies, and networking opportunities. We hope to see you In Tempe, New Orleans, or Washington D.C.!

    Watch, the News Digest, and future e-Newsletters for details.
