PAWLI Annual Training
April 3-5, 2014
Raddison Hotel & Conference Center
Green Bay, Wisconsin
This year's Professional Association of Wisconsin Licensed Investigators (PAWLI) Investigator Training Conference will be packed with educational speakers, networking events, vendors, and more. For details, we spoke with James Greenwold, President of PAWLI.
What sets this conference apart from previous conferences?
JG: Each year we look at the active survey that is kept all year on our website available at any time for the members to update their interests and needs. The information is answered in presentations at the annual conference, one-day seminars, and regional gathering throughout the year.
What major issues will this year's conference focus on?
JG: This year we will cover statement analysis, homicide investigation, sex crime investigation, surveillance strategies. Each of these by title might sound common, but we find that it is not the topic, but the presenter, that adds to our knowledge base.
What is the association's goal for this conference?
JG: The goal is the same as every year, the reason why PAWLI was formed: to give a central resource for licensed investigators in Wisconsin to keep up on the changes in the industry. There are very few outlets for this information that is not some kind of sales pitch. PAWLI creates a foundation specifically and only for the investigator.
What recreational events are included for attendees?
JG: We put on a conference that covers 12 or more CEUs in a 48 hour period. The only recreational events are found in the hospitality room that PAWLI sets up for after hours, the casino that in connected to the hotel, and the bars there offering relaxation.
A pizza buffet, PAWLI lunch, and a banquet with keynote speaker Steven Spingola will be part of the conference.
What are you most excited about with the upcoming conference?
JG: After being involved with 10 or more conferences, my excitement is the pressure felt by everyone on the board, that we can continue to put on the best state level conference in the country. That is pressure enough.
