Fellow SATAI Members,
My term as SATAI president began at the 2022 Spring Conference . I look forward to serving the members over the next two years and continuing to build on SATAI's reputation of offering excellent training opportunities and a top-notch crash test program at our spring conferences. I have asked Ted Yoder of the Glendale Police Department to serve as my vice president.
I would like to thank Dave Carr for his service as president over the past two years and all of the efforts that he has brought to bear for our group. Dave has kindly offered to stay on in leadership as Secretary, as George Ripsom has retired from our organization. I also want to thank George for his long tenured service as well. We wish him the best.
The photos, video, and data from the crash tests are now available to the membership through the Members Only area of the SATAI.com website. The presentations have also been uploaded at this time. If you would like to review any of those materials, log in to the members area and the landing page should direct you to the information that you are looking for.
With all of the shuffling occurring in SATAI leadership, it is necessary that we make an open call for volunteers to serve on the board. There is currently a vacancy on the board that needs to be filled. One member of SATAI expressed interest in serving on the board at the last conference. If you are interested in volunteering to serve on the board please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) before May 15, 2022. After that time we will hold an online election to confirm the new position on the board.
One of my goals is to return the organization to a schedule of two conferences a year, with the crash conference occurring in the spring at the Glendale facility and a fall conference in an alternate location, either closer to or within California. The board is currently searching for a similar law enforcement training facility in California that we can partner with going forward. If anyone in the membership has a contact or a suggestion, please reach out to me or someone else on the board.
Thanks for your continued support of SATAI. Please contact me with any questions or ideas you have for conference locations, presenters, or presentation topics.
