    The CAAA held its annual Kickoff Dinner on February 10, 2024 at the Virginia Wesleyan University in the Boyd Dining hall area. The event was attended by 40 members and guests and featured SAC Dugan presenting on the past year in review with the FBI and a look ahead to the many things planned for community outreach with the FBI Norfolk CAAA. There was the usual "White elephant" gift exchange which has proven to be very entertaining and fun. 

    The Warren Thrush Volunteer Achievement Award this year was presented to Ms. Cynthia Bell for her outstanding service during the 2023 calendar year.

    The evening was rounded out by our CAAA President giving a year in review of all the things we as a chapter had accomplished. from the many outreach events we supported , to the LE Symposium,  and with us receiving our 7th in a row award for Chapter Excellence in Operations. The event was a fun time for all and well received. We hope that many more of you will join us in the future at this great event.

    During a July 26 keynote at the FBI Atlanta Cyber Threat Summit, Director Christopher Wray warned that cybercriminals are weaponizing artificial intelligence—and the resulting threat will only worsen as machine-learning models become increasingly sophisticated. 

    Wray also explained that the FBI’s authorities under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA, enable our efforts to combat international cybercriminals. He identified 702-powered successes and stressed the urgency of reauthorizing that portion of the federal law.

    This years Annual Kickoff Meeting and Dinner was held on February 11, 2023 at the Boyd Dining hall on Virginia Wesleyan  University campus. There were 42 people in attendance.

    SAC Brian Dugan gave a report on the state of the Norfolk FBI office and the many things that had occurred during the year. He thanked the FBI Norfolk CAAA for their support during the tragic event in November at the Chesapeake Walmart and expressed how thankful the FBI staff was to see us there and talk with us.

    A white elephant event was held and everyone involved had a great time and laughed at the many antics that occurred.

    President Al Kaste conducted the business meeting and talked about the many things that we as an organization did during the previous year and where we fell short.

    The evening was wrapped up with the presentation of the Warren Thrush Volunteer Achievement award for exemplary service during 2022. This years awardee was Randy Plotkin for his tireless efforts to get the chapter on the Wild Apricot platform and to teach others this system and maintain our Office 365 system. His many long hours, dedication, and willingness to help all has moved the chapter ahead.

    Pictures of the event are in the Alumni area. 

    The Officers and Board would like to thank everyone who attended and made this a wonderful evening.

    The "SAVE THE DATE" emails for the LE symposium will be going out either later today or tomorrow. 2 emails, (1 for LE, and 1 for CAAA members) will announce the date and the forthcoming registration information. Currently working to get another speaker to replace one that had to cancel. Looking to schedule the next Committee meeting within the next 2 weeks so we can get more details finalized. All is looking ok so far. Working on SWAG as well for the event and should be a good one this year.
