COP President's Message


Dear Members and Friends,


I consider it a singular honor to serve as president of the Council of Presidents (COP) for 2016. The confidence you have shown in my leadership is most appreciative. Having served as a chapter president, I know the demands placed upon chapters and their leaders. Local partnerships and activities very often serve as that initial and only representation of our organization. The work performed at that level is of vital importance to the sustainability of the overall organization. So strengthening chapters and increasing their numbers will be two of my key focuses.


Special recognition and thanks goes to COP Vice President Sybil Scarbrough and COP Secretary/Treasurer Angela M. Jones for their dedication and commitment to serve as Officers of the Council. I look forward to working with NFBPA Board President, Bruce Moore, the national staff and local chapter presidents to accomplish the highly important mission and goals of this great organization.


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




Joseph “Dusty” McCormick

President, Council of Presidents
