Message from the President
Greetings to the General Membership, Vendors, Instructors and Staff! I have been bestowed a great honor as your new CACEO President. As your new president, I will not forget where I came from, and will not forget I work for you.
As we enter 2014, I am proud to say we are coming off one of our most popular and successful seminars in the history of the organization. I am also very proud of our other committees who have worked diligently to make each committee an accomplished and effective team. I would like to point out the Continuing Education Program has become the staple of this organization’s education. As more and more prominent instructors solicit CACEO and vice versa to work with us, the sky is the limit!
As you may remember, we began construction of our Online Program approximately a little over a year ago. We are nearing the completion of this and hope to launch sometime in 2014. This will allow the flexibility of taking courses towards your certification from the comfort of your own home.
In regards to the pursuit of obtaining an author for our standards bill, I have assembled what I believe is a truly talented Legislation Committee. They are committed to drafting the bill by the deadline and working with our very talented Lobbyist, Mr. John Lovell. In the end, the goal is to have a standards bill that makes sense for all code enforcement officers.
I also want to take this opportunity to thank all of the previous Board members and executive officers, as well as the current Board, who have paved the way with tireless commitment, energy, personal time, effort, blood, sweat and tears that have made this organization what it is today! We would not be where we are today, if it were not for the founding pioneers who paved the way. I cannot say “THANK YOU” enough!
In closing, it is my vision to help take this organization to the next level. This will not be easy and will take time and perseverance; however, I am truly blessed to be part of a very talented Board of Directors with the assistance of a very talented staff. I hope to meet as many of you as possible in the coming year.
Your humble servant,
