NEXT MEETING: January 26, 2017
Update from Police Chief Allwyn Brown
Richmond Police Chief Allwyn Brown will give us an update on activities and accomplishments. Chief Brown has been a sworn member of the RPD for over 30 years, serving as assistant police chief between July 2015 and January 2016. He was sworn in as police chief in April 2016.
Chief Brown attended POST’s Supervisory Leadership Institute (Class 86), and he is a graduate of Police Executive Research Forum’s Senior Management Institute for Police (SMIP). He holds a Master’s Degree in HR Management and an undergraduate degree in Business/HR Management.
Unfortunately our scribe had a problem with preparing the Flywheel notes last week. Therefore, we’re cutting back a bit for this issue. We are omitting the names of our guests, Recognitions, Happy Sad Dollars, and a detailed record of the Club Assembly.
- We discussed changing meeting times in order to better accommodate those members who have a limited lunch break from work. We confirmed a change presented last month: beginning February 2, we will begin our meetings promptly at 12:00 and conclude at 1:00 PM. This may entail cutting the time for Q&A after speakers’ presentations. However, most speakers are happy to stay afterwards for individual questions and conversation.
- The Annual Crab Feed is coming this Saturday, January 27. Please pay David Brown cash or credit card: $50 each. Act now to insure you get a seat. You can use the PayPal button on the right to order your tickets now.
The main focus of our meeting was a presentation by Treasurer David Brown on our club’s income and expenses for fiscal year 2017-2018. Have a look (PDF).
We hope you will be impressed by the number of organizations and projects that were helped by your generous donations last year.
