Mark Frankford, Captain, U.S. Coast Guard

I applied to the CHDS Executive Leaders Program because I saw it as an opportunity to broaden my understanding of the complex world of homeland security beyond my niche in the U.S. Coast Guard and the federal government. I benefited greatly from both the superb content of the week-long programs at CHDS and the time spent with my fellow participants who work at the executive level in a wide array of homeland security positions across federal, state and local governments, as well as industry and private practice. The knowledge, understanding and perspective I gained as a Coast Guard homeland security and defense leader is priceless.”
