Jessica Luedtke, PhD, is the winner of IACLEA’s Special Election for the Director-at-Large position. This position became vacant after L.A. Webb was appointed to Vice President of Finance earlier this spring.
“The Leadership Development Committee is pleased to welcome Jessica to the Board of Directors,” said Eric Heath, Immediate Past President, and chair of the committee. She will be sworn into this position during the Annual Awards Ceremony & Officer Installation at the conclusion of the Annual Conference & Exposition on June 30 in Las Vegas.
Dr. Luedtke is the Associate Director of Public Safety at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. She is the outgoing chair of IACLEA’s Accreditation Commission, a role she has had since 2015. During her time as chair, she has focused on leading strategic planning efforts for the accreditation program, which has included updated processes and procedures. She is committed to ensuring IACLEA accreditation standards are consistent with best practices and appropriate for all agencies.
Dr. Luedtke has also served on IACLEAs Annual Conference Training Committee and has worked as a PReP assessor since 2017. In 2020, she was a President’s Award recipient.
“Each member of the IACLEA Board of Directors contributes significant time to their volunteer leadership role,” Heath said. “The committee and I thank all the candidates for their willingness to serve.”
