IAWP 2014 Winnipeg Manitoba Canada

September 28 - October 2, 2014

Hotel Fort Garry, 222 Broadway, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada R3C 0R3

It is our pleasure to invite you to Winnipeg for the 52nd Annual International Association of Women Police Training Conference in September 2014. Our theme, The Strength of Many Embracing Human Rights, is inspired by our shared experiences and the rights that women before us fought to secure as police and law enforcement officers.

This conference planning committee began as a partnership with the Winnipeg Police Service, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police D Division, and the Brandon Police Service. The momentum has spread. Our committees now include members from Dakota Ojibway Police, Correctional Service of Canada, Province of Manitoba Corrections, Canadian Border Services and the Manitoba Liquor Control Commission, Regulatory Services, giving us full representation of Manitoba women in law enforcement.

We have been working diligently creating a training program that will promote discussion on the issues of law enforcement and human rights. For the first time, and as part of the main conference agenda, the conference will include “Future Women In Law Enforcement”, a two day program for high school students that is intended to attract a new generation of young women to careers in law enforcement. . There are many other events in store as well, including the Parade of Nations and Opening Ceremony held in conjunction with the Manitoba Association of Chiefs of Police and Peace Officers Memorial Service. The Manitoba Legislative Building will provide a spectacular backdrop for this service.  Sandra Martin, Conference Director 2014

She added, “The moment I read the notification, empowerment shifted to another dynamic level.  I look forward to being a link in the chain of ‘many’ embracing human rights, strategically and triumphantly.”

It’s time to make a decision to serve the IAWP by securing a position on the Board of Directors!  Take time to review Policy Nine, the Nominations and Elections Policy, on the IAWP website, look at the list of elective offices, and determine where your skills and aptitudes allow you to best participate in the governance of IAWP.

With the expanded number of regions, there are now twenty-six Regional Coordinators.  The increased number of positions will provide significant cultural diversity and representation on the Board of Directors. 

Letters of Intent to participate as a candidate for office are due to the Nominations Chair, Cande Ackler, by January 24, 2015 (this is a revision from the earlier announced date).

The election process is accomplished by mail-in ballots.  After January 24, the Nominations and Elections Committees will gather information about the candidates, prepare ballots, and mail them to each member in “good standing” (dues paid by April 25, 2015).  A Special Election Bulletin Package including candidate biographies and ballots will be mailed by May 24, 2015, and must be returned by mail so that they are received by the  Elections Chair by August 12, 2015.

There will be no opportunity to vote at the Training Conference in Wales!  Sealed ballots will be transported to the conference, counted by the Election Committee at the meeting site, and election results will be announced prior to the conclusion of the Annual General Membership Meeting in Wales.

Questions about the Election process may be addressed to Elections Committee Chair Wendy Wilson or Nominations Committee Chair Cande Ackler.  Contact information is available in the Who’s Who section of this magazine.
