 MACPO President

Deanna Ruffing 



Thank you to all who attended this years’ successful spring conference!   I especially would like to thank the Training and Education Committee and Membership Committee for their fine work in organizing the conference.   We broke another record (two years in a row) with the number of vendors that attended!

Congratulations to our 2015 Award Recipients who were recognized: Mike McGuire- Al Reker Distinguished Service Award; Denise Olson-Outstanding Performance Award; Woodland Hills-Excellence in Corrections Award; Elisabeth Payne- Rookie Agent of the Year and Nexus Treatment Programs-Superior Service Award.  John Klavins was also recognized as outgoing Chair of the Director’s Committee.   The election also took place at the conference and we welcome President-Elect, Jon Schiro of Brown County as a new member of the Executive Board.  Carter Diers was re-elected and will continue to serve and do a great job as our Treasurer. 

This is also the time of year where the President concludes his or her term.  As my second term nears a close, I would like to thank the membership for the opportunity to serve as the MACPO President.   I am grateful for the opportunities that were present while serving in this role.  I have also appreciated working with all of those on the Executive Board who are so dedicated to MACPO and the membership.  Neal Huemoeller will do a great job leading the organization as the next President.    

Thank you also to all the members of the various committees to continue to serve MACPO.  We are always looking for new members and welcome new ideas.  Please consider joining a committee and building relationships with others in the field.  I would be happy to connect anyone interested to the Committee Chair in their particular area of interest.  Please continue to take advantage of the regional trainings that are offered as part of your membership!   Information may be found on the website.

I hope you enjoy a relaxing and safe summer!

Deanna Ruffing
MACPO President
