The International Association of Airport and Seaport Police - InterPort Police, will hold a one hour training program in room D161 from 11:00–12:00 Noon on Oct. 14, 2101 at the Dallas Convention Center in alliance with the ASIS Conference.
Keynote speakers are Pervez Musharraf, former president of Pakistan, and pilot Chesley B. Sullenberger III. Following the Sept. 11th terror attacks, the United States sought President Musharraf’s support to fight the Taliban. With a vision for a modern, democratic, non-fundamentalist Islamic Pakistan, he was one of America’s greatest allies. President Musharraf will share his experiences on Thursday, Oct. 14 at 8 a.m.

Sullenberger became an international hero in Jan. 2009 when he and his crew safely guided US Airways Flight 1549 to an emergency water landing in New York City’s frigid Hudson River, saving the lives of 155 people. The Airbus A320’s two engines had lost thrust following a bird strike. Captain of what has been dubbed the “Miracle on the Hudson,” Sullenberger is an aviation safety expert and accident investigator. He will speak on Wednesday, Oct. 13 at 8 a.m.

On Friday, Oct. 15, humorist and best-selling author Dave Barry will address attendees at the closing luncheon. For 25 years Barry was a syndicated columnist whose work appeared in more than 500 newspapers in the United States and abroad. In 1988 he won the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary. He has written 30 books.

Law Enforcement/Military Appreciation Day will be held Oct. 14. Active law enforcement and military professionals will be granted free admission on this day. Attendees must register on-site at the convention center. Law enforcement or military ID with photo is required. The complimentary pass includes admission to educational programs, the exhibit floor, and the keynote address by President Pervez Musharraf.
