Message From The President
I want to express my gratitude to serve you as Chapter President for the 2013 – 2014 term. A warm welcome to our new members and the 500 plus existing chapter members. Thank you for contributing your time and knowledge to make this an active chapter.
The discipline of fire investigation is constantly developing new principles and setting the bar higher for specific professional standards to even “qualify” as a fire investigator. Therefore, the chapter is dedicating the majority of our seminars to frontline topics dedicated to advancing the knowledge of our members so we can keep current with the changes that directly affect the field of fire investigation from the public and private view.
The MA IAAI will continue to facilitate seminars covering a number of interesting and timely topics this year. Our bi-monthly meeting topics this year have been, and will be, offered in Auburn, Boston, Chicopee and Hyannis. We are fortunate to have guest speakers, covering interesting and timely topics, who are willing to double up on their presentations to our chapter.
We continuously strive to make sure our seminars provide an opportunity to learn about a wide variety of fire related subjects and earn professional development hours at the same time. Plus the seminars are a great opportunity to network with fellow associates working in the fire investigation industry.
We also want your feedback of future seminar topics, web site design or social media that should be considered. I can say from experience that it is a daunting task to cover a wide variety of subject matters. So please let me know what area of fire investigation is important and need of attention.
Please introduce yourself to me and the fellow board members. I want to hear your comments and opinions on our chapter. If you have a comment, please let us know. For what is unsaid cannot be done. Let’s move forward not backward!
Dave Percy, CFI IAAI
