Friends and allies,
Last week I corresponded with the La Grange Village officials and the La Grange Police Department members and informed them of my intention to retire on December 31, 2014 after more than 40 years in law enforcement. There comes a time in everyone’s life and career to pass the leadership onto the next generation. This is not a sad occurrence but a
very happy one as I reflect on the honor of having served in a very noble profession and
with some outstanding individuals.
I will be celebrating my retirement with a dinner on Saturday, January 24th, 2015. Please
save the date and further details will be made available in the near future.

Public Affairs Director/IL ESGR

As a reminder, your Illinois Chapter now has its own internet domain. All communications (usually once or
twice a month) will be sent via this new domain. If you have not been receiving a monthly meeting notice via
email, send your correct email address to [email protected] and check with your IT Department to
insure that “” has been “white-listed” in your filters. Please note that in order to keep Chapter/Division e-mails to the members at a minimum, we have established “deadlines” for announcements
(retirement parties, training opportunities, etc.). The submission deadlines for all but “absolute emergency”
messages will be the FIRST & THIRD FRIDAY of each month. We will endeavor to send out a bi-monthly e
-mail “blast” shortly after those deadlines. Please keep this in mind when planning your events, etc.

Updating the National Office at Quantico
You are reminded that it is your responsibility to keep the National Office at Quantico advised of your current

the membership rolls if you do not receive your dues notice and remain current on dues. In addition, with the
advent of Electronic Voting by the Illinois Chapter, only those members paid up will be allowed to vote andballots are provided via the email address on file at Quantico.
When updating your email/contact information at Quantico, ALWAYS place your PREFERRED email address in the area provided for WORK EMAIL, regardless of whether or not you're still working or retired. That is the key used by Quantico. You may make changes to your member account by going to http:// and logging in to the Members area using your Membership Number and Password as indicated.
Thank you!"

Looking Ahead… 2015 State Conference at Galena
An exploratory committee, led by incoming State Board President Wes Hoadley, recently traveled to the Eagle
Ridge Resort & Spa in Galena, Illinois the potential site of next year’s State Retrainer. Tentative dates for the
Retrainer are Monday, November 2 through Wednesday November 4, 2015.
The facilities are great, the scenery even better, and resort management is bending over backwards to accommodate our group’s needs. Room prices will be at the same great price contracted for this years’ conference in
East Peoria.
This is, as most of you know, a premier Illinois resort and the historic town of Galena is just a quick jaunt
down the road offering a wide variety of activities besides shopping, fine dining, historic sites .
On site, in addition to the normal amenities provided at a world class resort, there will be available hiking and
biking trails (22 miles of them), horseback riding, discounted golf (weather permitting). We hope to have informational packets from Eagle Ridge available for distribution to attendees of this years’ conference in East
Obviously, details are tentative and there will be much additional information published in the coming months
as details are finalized at Eagle Ridge.
