The Iowa Association of Private Investigators is gearing up for its 25th anniversary celebration at the annual IAPI conference. The two-day event will take place July 22 and 23 in Des Moines, Iowa.
Clare Reed, IAPI Past President, told PInow.com that association members have several reasons to look forward to the annual conference.
"The main thing is continuing education because we need 12 hours," Reed said. "[The conference] gives us a chance to network with everybody in our association and listen to great speakers and try to pick up a few things from each of them that will help us do our jobs better."
Conference speakers will be presenting on topics including small-business advice, cell tower forensics, investigative reporting, vehicle black box technology and counter-surveillance measures. Attendees can fulfill the mandatory 12 hours of continuing education units by participating in these lectures.
The lineup of speakers and topics includes:
* Robert Clement - Small-business operations
* Michael Burke - Terrorism awareness, incident command and bombing awareness
* Michael O'Kelly - Cell tower forensics
* Norbert Zaenglein - Counter surveillance
* Stan Oglesby - Accident reconstruction
* Nancy Newhoff - Investigative reporting
* IRB - Data search
* The Dana Company - Property and liability insurance
In addition to the educational offerings, Reed said the estimated 80 attendees will be treated to a special banquet honoring the association's past presidents.
As Reed explained, this 25th anniversary event gives all members of IAPI the chance to celebrate the past before focusing on the association's future.
"It means everything to us. It's about the history of our association, and having a banquet to recognize past presidents. It's a great thing," Reed said.
