       Spring Conference
         Rocky Mount, NC                  Greetings,
         March 26-27, 2009
                                          It is hard to believe that another year has come and gone. It seems just like
                                          yesterday when I was driving up I-95 for Quantico. Eleven years has passed since
                                          that day and little did I know that it was just the beginning of a wonderful
                                          adventure. I had the unique opportunity to be exposed to the North Carolina
      Nash Community College
                                          Chapter before I attended the Academy. It was through this contact that let me see
    HOTEL ARRANGEMENTS:                   the type of organization this was. Through the years I have served with some very
                                          dedicated people. I remember sitting in those first meetings and listening to the
     Holiday Inn – Rocky Mount
                                          decisions being made and seeing the pride and concern that these people had for
        200 Enterprise Drive              this great organization. I have watched many Presidents come and go and they all
      Rocky Mount, NC 27804               wanted to leave the organization a little better than when they took the reigns. I am
           252-937-7100                   proud to serve this New Year as your Chapter President, and I too hope to leave it a
     FBINAA Conference Rate               little better.
            $70.00 + tax
                                          I want to take this opportunity to thank Cindy Isenhour for her dedicated service
    RESERVE BY February 26        th      and leadership over the last five years. Cindy was a great Secretary/ Treasure and
                                          has shown her leadership skills in the last year as President. Thank you Cindy for
                                          all you have done for this Organization, and we all look forward to you serving in
      MEETING SCHEDULE:                   the “best job on the board” this year as the Immediate Past President. I would also
                                          like to say thank you to Greg Harrington as he leaves the board and can assure he
           March 26, 2009                 and Cindy that they leave this Organization a little better than when they took it.

          Board Meeting                   I would also like to say a special thank you to Retired Chief Robert K Morris. Bob
                                          gave me the opportunity to go to the FBINA, for which I am very grateful. I also
      MBM Conference. Center
                                          had the opportunity to watch him serve as our President. Bob taught me a lot about
              3:00 p.m.                   leadership and pushed me to be more than just a by-stander. I thank him and you
      Bus leaves the motel at 2:30        for the confidence that has been bestowed to me to be your President. I look
                                          forward to serving with the current board and I know that this Organization will be
           March 27, 2009                 in good hands for many years to come.

         Training Conference              I would like to thank SAC Nathan Gray for his support of our Chapter. Mr. Gray
             Registration:                has been with us at every turn, and has given us whatever we needed to get the job
                                          done. It doesn’t seem enough to just say thank you. I would also like to thank S/A
              8:30 - 9:30 a.m.            Jerry Senatore for his dedication to our chapter and wish him the best in his future
                                          endeavors. And I know I speak for all of us when I say that he will always be
                                          welcomed as a part of our organization. I look forward to working with S/A John
       Registration Fee: $25.00
                                          Letterhos as our new training coordinator. I’m sure he will continue in the footsteps
                                          of those before him and serve this organization well.
           Business Casual                In closing I would like to say I’m looking forward to a great 2009 and look forward
                                          to seeing all of you in Rocky Mount.

Dear Colleagues,
Goodbyes are never easy, so I will make this one short. I have accepted the position of Special Agent in Charge of the
Phoenix Division of the FBI. I am looking forward to the new challenges; however I will definitely miss working with all
of you.

I have met some of the smartest and most dedicated people in law enforcement here. Our National Academy Chapter is
one of the best in the FBI and I am extremely proud to say I’ve been a part of it. We’ve have built and solved tough cases,
we’ve put the bad guys in jail and we’ve developed an open line of communication.

In the past few years, the North Carolina National Academy Association membership has grown tremendously, which
shows how dedicated all of our agencies are to make successful partnerships. Appointing officers, agents and deputies to
come work on our Safe Streets Task Forces, Joint Terrorism Task Forces and Cyber Crimes Task Forces isn’t easy in a
time when bodies are a precious commodity. We have proven over and over how much we can get accomplished when
we work together.

Our world grows smaller every day with common threats. We are making our communities better and safer places by
sharing a common goal – strengthening and building our National Academy.

Best wishes,
Nathan T. Gray
Special Agent in Charge


Greetings, I am John Letterhos and I would like to take just a few sentences to introduce myself to all of you involved
with the North Carolina Chapter of the National Academy. In November, 2008, Jerry Senatore decided that it was time
for a bit of a career change and he left the Training Coordinator/National Coordinator position to work on our Joint
Terrorism Task Force (JTTF). The position of National Academy Coordinator was a position I had been interested in for
several years and I was thrilled when I was picked to replace Jerry. Jerry did a phenomenal job with the National
Academy and I hope I can pick-up where he left off.

          I have been with the FBI for approximately ten years and have worked drugs and white collar crime for a majority
of that time. I also spent six years on the Charlotte SWAT Team. I am very excited to be able to work with all of you,
some of the finest law enforcement professionals in the country. If there is ever anything I can do for any of you please
do not hesitate to call. I can be reached at (704)331-8729 and my e-mail address is John.Letterhos@ic.fbi.gov.
