CPAAAS President Mid Year Review


Hoffman Estates CPAAA & Schaumburg CPAAAS connect!


I hope this finds you well.

This week I had the amazing opportunity to meet with the Vice President of the Hoffman Estates Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association, Leigh Bartkowiak. 

Leigh contacted me as a result of volunteering with our Alumni at ILEETA this April, and we had the chance to sit down and share ideas on Fundraising, Guest Speakers, and ways to blend our organizations due to our neighboring communities.  This was also the ideal opportunity to make introductions to Leigh with our brilliant new colleagues in Rockford - CAP Coordinator Joe Owens, and the Gurnee CPAAA President Ron Crook. 

Leigh has many contacts in our Village and was kind enough to come to our beautiful community to visit with me.  We learned that Hoffman Estates has not only their Alumni Association but an EMA group she spoke very highly of.     Hmmmm......

Leigh also share our heartfelt interest in supporting Canine Officers, and the program we are so dedicated to with our Canine awareness program especially since we received the outstanding Motorola Grant.  Hoffman Estates had 3 Canine Officers and now is down to only one, but her hope is they will raise funds to support at least 2 or maybe even 3 again. 

Hoffman Estates, Schaumburg, Gurnee, and Rockford are looking to the near future to work together to support each other in not only fundraising efforts, but public service as well.  Our hope is to support each other where we can to maintain the presence of our organizations and share best practices to remain strong through the challenges we face as non profit organizations.

Leigh and I agreed that because the Township Food Pantry supports not only Schaumburg, but Hoffman Estates, Rolling Meadows, Elk Grove and Streamwood, it was important to try to work together on an opportunity to have CPAAAS Food Pantry Ambassador Laura Collins see if there was an opportunity to receive any of their Alumni's uncut / unused coupons.  It all goes to the same place at the end of the day, and this will enable Laura to maximize her efforts and our CPAAAS annual Food Pantry donation even more.  CPAAAS is so thankful for Leigh's willingness to be open to this opportunity for the Food Pantry!  :)

Watch for additional communication to come through for opportunities to work together!  Especially with the Holiday week upon us!

All the best-

Theresa Plazewski,

CPAAAS President #5

Technology Update - Note from the President

Dear Friends

I hope this finds you well.

It has been one full year since we began improving our technology to serve you more efficiently, and effectively.

With any form of growth, there is often times growing pains.   In December, our Yahoo email experienced some down time due to an upgrade we were not prepared for.

This was minimal and Joe Ziniel and I worked through it.   More recently, our Yahoo email account was hit by spam. 

Please accept our sincerest apologies for any of our members or partners who may have received an unwelcomed email(s) from our CPAAAS account.

Our Webmaster Joe and I continue to be committed to excellence in serving you, and correcting any hiccups we encounter along the way with regard to our technology servers.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

Kind Regards,


 Theresa Plazewski
