Monthly Exploring Updates

​Exploring Conference News

The 2021 Annual Law Enforcement Exploring Conference at the Rochester Civic Center has been cancelled!  The Law Enforcement Exploring Academy has been rescheduled to June 26-27, 2021 at The HERO Center! Watch for MLEEA updates on the scheduling for this “Mini-State” event and an expansion of the event programs!

We are still hopeful that the 2021 Duluth Conference at the Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College will return in October, 2021! Watch for details from MLEEA!

Governor’s Fire Prevention day and The MN Fire Exploring Association (MN-FEA) Competition at the State Fair for 2021 is up in the air at this time. Please watch for additional updates from Northern Star Exploring or from MN-FEA about a return to the State Fair or an alternative event.

Post Renewals and Update!

Post Renewals for 2022 will be Due in August of 2021 in order to get everyone registered before we conduct Fall recruitment! Advisors: Watch your mailboxes in June for the 2021-22 paperwork.

Please contact Colleen ([email protected]) or Brian ([email protected]) for details!

Only a few Posts took advantage of the online process last year, and all but 6 of our Posts seem to prefer the good old-fashioned paper renewal documents, therefore, the Renewal Packets will be mailed out to Post Advisors in June with a return date starting August 5th at our turn-in and Program Kick-off drive-through event at Basecamp running from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.! Other times can be arranged for drop off or pick-up of renewal documents. As always, contact Colleen or Brian with questions.
