We look forward to hosting an engaging event that you and your loved ones can enjoy from the comfort of your own home. Registration is FREE with options to purchase breakfast delivery* and raffle tickets for our fantastic Staycation raffle prize on Lake Whatcom! Our keynote speaker this year will be Monica Alexander, Division Manager of Advanced Training for the WA State Criminal Justice Training Commission. She will be presenting This Moment in Time: Confronting Bias in Law Enforcement and Our Nation. Monica was the first African American woman to be promoted to Captain in the almost 100 year history of the WA State Patrol’s existence. Her passion led her to establish the missing and murdered indigenous women’s project, culminating in a 36-page report. She also worked to highlight the 32-year backlog of over 10,000 sexual assault kits, eventually helping push through legislation that funded an $11 million lab facility in Vancouver to complete work on the backlog. Monica is a great leader and influencer. Her enthusiasm, passion and sense of humor are contagious, and we look forward to having her at our Virtual Leadership Breakfast! *Must register by September 8 to purchase breakfast delivery.
