FBI National Academy Associates Announces The 2022-2023 National Board

The FBI National Academy Associates, Inc. (FBINAA), the world’s strongest law enforcement leadership network announces its National Board for the 2022-2023 year. The new Association President, Timothy Braniff, Plans & Prevention Program Manager in Emergency Management with Sound Transit (WA), will preside over the Association and work with the National Board, National Team, and its Chapters to guide the direction of the FBINAA for its members.

“Beside sustaining Past-President Truver’s initiative for enhancing training and building financial sustainability within our association, my mission motivation will be interconnected with his financial sustainability and our membership growth, through valuing work by current and lifelong members of our association” said President Braniff during his swearing-in ceremony this past weekend at the 58th FBINAA National Annual Training Conference in Cleveland, OH.

President Braniff also discussed his call to action of “ROAR”, which is a “Reach Out And Re-engage” model and setting sites to increase FBINAA membership by 25% or reaching 20,000 members in the next twelve to eighteen months. Per President Braniff, “If every chapter or every member set a goal of seven renewals per month and campaigned their inactive members, our goal of 20,000 will be achieved by next June. The time is right now and continuous, not waiting for the new year.”
