COP President's Message





Dear Members and Friends,

It is a great honor for me to serve as president of the Council of Presidents (COP) for the year 2014.  Many thanks go to the chapter presidents for their confidence in my leadership of the COP.   It is a privilege to represent this outstanding group of leaders in an organization dedicated to excellence in public service.   Special recognition goes to the COP vice president, Vanessa C. Akins and the COP secretary/treasurer, Catherine Foster Rowell for their commitment to serve as Officers of the Council.

With your support, I look forward to working with the NFBPA Board President, Verdenia C. Baker, the national staff and local chapter presidents to accomplish the critical mission and goals of this organization.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve this great organization as we promote excellence and diversity in public service!



Arnold E. Sapenter

President, Council of Presidents
