The FOP 64th Biennial Conference was held in New Orleans, LA from August 12-15. There were some major election accomplishments. A new National President, Patrick Yoes, former National Secretary, was voted in, replacing the resigning, log-standing president, Chuck Canterbury, who had been in office for 16 years. A new National Vice President, Joe Gamaldi of Houston, TX Lodge was voted in, replacing Jay McDonald. Jimmy Holderfield was voted in as the new National Secretary. And lastly, for the office of National Treasurer, Tom Penoza was re-elected. With a new National board, we see great things happening within the FOP. Pat Yoes, our new President, is and always has been, for the officers.
The location for 2023 biennial conference location was also on the ballot. The two contenders were Houston, TX and Las Vegas, NV. Las Vegas was voted in by a landslide! Our MGM Grand Hotel & Casino staff did a phenomenal presentation. We now have a lot of work before us to get ready for the most extraordinary event the FOP has ever seen. With the help of the MGM and LVCA we’re going to rock their worlds with the best ever convention. So please step up to the plate and jump in with both feet, we need YOU!!
