With a backdrop of 2021 and its lingering uncertainty, slowly building optimism and pent-up need for connection, USSSA is recognizing its 50th anniversary as an association. The year may not bring us the party we had hoped for, but we’ll make every effort to nurture engagement and celebrate who we are as an organization.
Our origin was rooted in the desire for senior agents to establish a connection with each other that would be sustained throughout our careers and post retirement. The fact that USSSA has seen steady growth while maintaining a core membership of long-time retirees speaks volumes on our work to evolve and expand service to our members and at the same time stay connected to today’s United States Secret Service.
We have never enjoyed a closer relationship with current USSS leadership and active employees, and have re-invented our membership classes, communications and outreach to ensure that all of us, current and former USSS employees, keep up connections. Our growth has been inclusive to agents, officers and eligible USSS employees, as well as spouses, who wish to sustain their USSSA relationships.
Our mission as an association drives us to evolve as both a social and service organization for members, their families, and others in the larger law enforcement community. This defines who we are as individuals and represents the best of what we learned and experienced as part of the United States Secret Service.
When asked to step up and help others in need, our members – individually, via current employers, and through the USSSA Foundation – have found ways to answer those calls for medical, personal or other support. The USSSA Foundation, which depends on both sustaining and new donors, is proactive in seeking opportunities to reach out and improve situations where possible. Continued support is ALWAYS welcome.
