#IACLEA2019 Recap

Vancouver Vibe Wins Delegates Over…#IACLEA2019 Ranks as #1 Conference in Canada

IACLEA’s 2019 Annual Conference & Exposition, held in Vancouver, Canada, came in at the largest IACLEA conference in Canada—and larger than many in the United States. The four-day event delivered quantity and quality, with national experts wowing the delegates, a lively exhibit hall, engaging programming, and social events to network and build relationships.

It’s impossible to capture the enthusiasm and energy of the delegates—but the words and pictures that follow hint at the positive professional development that took place.

Mark your calendars: New Orleans. June 22–25, 2020.

National Experts

Delegates heard from four national experts who packed the house for fascinating plenary sessions, including Commissioner Bill Bratton, whose fireside chat-style discussion was sponsored by IACLEA’s good friends at LiveSafe Mobile.


IACLEA workshops address relevant issues of the day, such as active shooter scenarios.
