Hello Central AZ Chapter Members. 

I hope you enjoyed our December 2019 Chapter Luncheon at the Desert Willow Conference Center. Special thanks to our Board of Directors for putting together such a special get-together as well as the Desert Willow Conference Center for a great facility. It was truly a team effort. Thanks to Fusion Risk Management and BC in the Cloud, our sponsors, for their support all year long.

I would also like to thank our speaker, Former FBI SA John Iannarelli. We hope you enjoyed John’s presentation and thanks everyone in attendance for the lively discussion.

The board is truly a team and we are always on the lookout for new team members. Please consider it this year. There is little time required and there is training for every position.

We will talk to you soon.  On behalf of the 2019 Chapter Board, See you in the New Year!

Ed Simko
2019/2020 Central Arizona Chapter President
