Paul Ominsky concluded his term at the Annual Conference & Exposition in Vancouver. The Association saw continued programmatic expansion and achievements during his tenure, including the debut of IACLEA’s First-Line Supervisor’s Institute, the launch of the Global Center for Campus Public Safety, and the convening of the largest IACLEA conference in Canada! He also initiated the national search for the Association’s next executive director and led the Board through important strategic decisions. We thank you for your tireless service to the Association, (now) Immediate Past President Ominsky!

The challenges that Paul managed this past year show his remarkable and extraordinary leadership skills. In every debate or discussion, Paul has always put the needs of the membership in the forefront. Paul had to address tough issues and made extremely difficult decisions.

I am forever grateful to our Association and those who serve it." —David Bousquet, Immediate Past President 2018–2019
