A New Year’s Day Greeting from HAPCOA President Richard Rosa

Greetings to all,

As the Hispanic American Police Command Officers Association rings in the New Year, receiving 2019 with much promise and optimism, as President, it is my wish that each of you and your families reach your full potential in both your professional career and personal lives.  I want to take this opportunity to thank our national board and our membership for all the work performed in 2018 in furtherance of HAPCOA’s goals and mission; including, the volunteer work performed in your local communities.

I am looking forward to another successful and well-attended symposium this year; one that will increase our membership numbers, as well as, continue to expound HAPCOA’s reputation as the future of law enforcement through selection, retention, promotion and education.  In the near future our agenda for the symposium will be published on our webpage ( www.hapcoa.org )

The 45th Annual National Training Symposium and Career Fair scheduled from April 29th through May 3rd, 2019 is only four months away.  Now is the time to start making preparations to meet with your leadership to advise them of the importance of sending as many participants as possible to attend this year’s event.  Furthermore, if you become aware of a business or person who would like to sponsor or make a donation to HAPCOA please have them contact Executive Director Tony Chapa at 202-664-4461 or Mary Cox at HAPCOACONF@yahoo.com.

Sincerely,

Richard Rosa

National President
