Mark M. Zito, Assistant Special Agent in Charge, Homeland Security Investigations Orange County

It was such an honor and privilege to have the opportunity to attend the CHDS-NPS Executive Leaders Program. I applied for this program because of past alumni I know who have attended and I believe as a leader you should always better yourself and step up to new challenges. The fact that the application process is so extensive and competitive was another reason that I wanted to take the challenge. I know for my agency it is very competitive to get selected for this, so it was a great honor for me to represent HSI.

The highlights of the program were meeting and getting close to such a diverse group of people and agencies throughout the government. It really made me think differently on the various topics that we covered throughout this program. I also got a lot out of the after class media session, which has proven to help me already in my current position. I feel that should be a mandatory session if possible. ”
