As the newly appointed President of the Boston Division’s Citizens’ Academy Alumni Association, Mr. DiCenso has dramatically improved the level of involvement of the alumni members through his tireless dedication and positive can-do attitude. This has resulted in an alumni association that is both motivated and dedicated to assisting the FBI by increasing public awareness of the FBI’s mission and commitment to public safety through community involvement.
Since assuming the duties of President of the Citizens’ Academy Alumni Association, Mr. DiCenso has established clear goals and objectives that have motivated the alumni to develop several new ideas and a strategy aimed at improving and expanding relations between the community and the FBI. He organized bi-monthly alumni events and worked closely with the Boston FBI Office in scheduling the Sig Sauer Academy, case presentations and FBI recruiting forums. These efforts have produced an increased membership and an expanded awareness of today’s FBI.
Mr. DiCenso was instrumental in the success of the Boston Division’s celebration of the FBI’s 100th anniversary. He worked tirelessly in securing the venue, obtaining equipment, and enlisting the support of the local InfraGard Chapter and the Society of Former Special Agents to ensure that this event was well promoted.
