Dear Friends and Colleagues,
It is such an honor to serve as the 2018-2019 President for the North Carolina Division of the International Association for Identification. I am very thankful to Bradley Whitaker, my predecessor, for his outstanding leadership of our organization in the previous year. It was a pleasure working with Bradley during his tenure, and he has certainly inspired me to continue moving forward with the important work of the NCIAI.
The NCIAI is a place where professionalism, educational opportunities, networking, and kinship meet. Our organization is one of the oldest and best-established divisions of the International Association for Identification. We have an outstanding and dedicated membership who continuously seek excellence through continuous improvement. However, continuous improvement does not alone imply self-improvement; rather, it is similarly indicated by the support that members frequently offer one another. Providing mentorship, providing expertise, inspiring colleagues, and professional communications are only a few of the many reasons that the NCIAI is the robust association that it is.
To ensure our continued success, it is important to build new relationships with our newer members, strengthen existing relationships with our seasoned members, and look toward the future with collective anticipation.
In keeping with that theme, planning for the next conference is already in the works! Our next educational conference will be held in Asheville, NC, from May 20-23, 2019, and it is already showing promise as being one of the best conferences ever prepared.
If you have any ideas or suggestions on how to further the success of our organization, don’t hesitate to contact me, any of our officers, or any board member. We are here to serve you.
