ON TARGET The GALEFI E-Mail Newsletter P.O. Box 29 Locust Grove, Georgia 30248 678-432-8999 www.galefi.com

From the Desk of the Executive Director Larry is the focal point for all training except the Conference training. All payments should go through this office (conference registration, membership renewal & sponsorship, etc).

The President’s Column First, let’s talk about the conference. We are attempting to become more accommodating by providing the ability to enroll for specific classes using a link through our website. However, as we are new to this game, problems have arisen which necessitates the need for clarification. 1. The online enrollment form does not provide a means of payment. Currently, it is intended solely for the purpose of conference course selection. While this can be annoying, the use of the form provides an immediate means of quantifying your registration. Mailing in your registration will result in a time lapse which could cause the class you are interested in to reach its enrollment limit before we receive your course selection and payment. Of course, the choice is yours. My suggestion would be to select the course online first and then make your payment as soon as possible. 2. At the time of my writing this message, our PayPal option for conference fees is not functioning properly. We are working on the problem and hope to have it back up as a viable payment choice soon. 3. Checks can be mailed directly to Larry at P.O. Box 29, Locust Grove, GA 30248. 4. Larry is prepared to accept credit card purchases, as well. He can either be called directly (678-432-8999); the credit card information can be mailed with a conference registration form; or the required information can be emailed to him at galefi.young@live.com

Now let’s talk about submitting course of fire for GALEFI approval. Following the enactment of GPOSTC rules requiring annual firearms qualification in 2006, the limited authority of course approval was granted to GALEFI by the Council. Since then, several agencies have submitted agency specific courses for approval. As quite a number were not approved, an equivalency guidelines memorandum was developed. Please read the required criteria and format your course of fire utilizing the GALEFI drill sheet before submitting your request. If you submit a course of fire through the website and do not receive notification of its receipt from either Larry or myself within a couple of days, please contact us directly so we’ll be aware there is an issue. Alternatively, you could choose to send the course directly to us a galefi.young@live.com or leo.hathaway@co.clayton.ga.us which might be the better option. We have experienced several problems arising from online submissions. Once submitted, it may take several months before you receive notification regarding approval. Approval is granted by obtaining a unanimous vote of the Board Members present during the meeting following the submission of the course. The Board normally meets on the first Friday of the odd numbered months. In many cases a few minor changes in the course will result in a “yes” vote if approval has been previously denied. When choosing one of these options, choose the DOWNLOAD button once you have followed the link.
