This slate of officers, with eight regional directors and three directors at-large will remain in place until new officers are sworn in during the organizations 2018 Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida, June 29-July 2. The officers were selected through a vote of all current IACLEA members.

“IACLEA members have elected the right leaders for the right time in the Association’s history,” said David Perry, assistant vice president for safety and chief of police at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida. Chief Perry was IACLEA president for the 2014-2015 term. “For IACLEA to effectively serve its members and our higher education partners, the leadership must be both bold and thoughtful. I believe these are the qualities this team will exhibit as they advance IACLEA programs, membership, and prestige.”

President Bousquet and the Board of Directors will lead the organization during an important period of transition.
