President's Message - January/February

CSDIAI Members,

I hope everyone had a safe holiday season and had the opportunity to spend time with love ones. One cannot believe that we are embarking on a new decade! Your executive committee is extremely excited about this upcoming year and we are looking forward to continuously taking efforts to optimize provided services for our membership.

In order to optimize the progression of our prestigious organization, we would like your assistance. Within the next few months there will be multiple opportunities to become involved with the organization. The executive committee are aware of how talented and resourceful our membership is and we would like to utilize those resources. If you are interested in contributing to the organization, have you thought about joining a committee? By joining a committee, one may have the opportunity to build upon their leadership skills and also network with fellow forensic practitioners. 

One can also be involved by joining the executive committee. The executive committee is instrumental in improving services for the membership and conducting daily business in regards to the organization. Nominations for a multitude of positions are now available on the website. All information in regards to the nominations must be received no later than February 14, 2020 and sent to This email address is being protected from spambots.

The executive committee is excited to announce that our membership is growing daily! We are continuously receiving applications to join our organization and we are grateful for this. Personally, forensics has changed my life along with joining this forensic organization and I am excited for new members to join the team. If one is not aware, we are currently having a membership drive and one could win a free registration for recommending new members. We would like for you to encourage a fellow colleague to join if they are not a member and tell them about the benefits of being a member. The member who recruits the most new members which are approved for membership, between August 11, 2019 to March 14, 2020 will have their 2020 conference registration fee covered. Yes!! 

Lastly, we are embarking on the 104th CSDIAI Training Seminar, which will be held at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa located in Palm Springs, CA on May 18-22, 2020. The executive committee is excited about putting together a rich forensic training experience with the palm desert as our canvas. The theme of the conference is “Keeping the Vision in 2020” and the installation dinner will have a roaring 20’s theme. So come with your finest pearls and the best vintage look. Registration for the conference and hotel are now available online. Please take advantage of the early bird specials in order to save upon this training experience.

I would like to wish you and your families a Happy New Year! May 2020 bring good health and prosperity to you all!
