From Joe Davis – Director, Alabama Fusion Center
I highly recommend the CHDS Executive Leaders Program for senior officials engaged in homeland security issues at federal, state, tribal and local levels. This program provides a one-of-a-kind educational forum, focusing on terrorism, homeland security issues, and contemporary public policy matters. I recently completed a PhD program, and the subject matter in this program is delivered at a comparable academic level but without the dissertation! The ELP provides an excellent setting to facilitate identification and resolution homeland security challenges, but more importantly, it provides the perfect environment for building the relationships and networks that will promote homeland security information sharing for years to come. This program was well worth the 4 week investment of my time.
