It is my honor to serve as your President of the Ohio Chapter of the International Association of Arson Investigators for the 2019-2020 year. The Ohio Chapter has a rich history within the International Association of Arson Investigators, from being the 1st Chapter to sending multiple people to leadership roles within the International. We, the Executive Board, are dedicated to serving you, its members, through training, education, networking and certifications.
The website and Facebook page will be updated regularly with the latest training opportunities and news within Ohio, neighboring states and the International. Please check both frequently for new opportunities to further your knowledge base. Please do not hesitate to contact me or the Training and Education Committee if there are any classes that you would like to see the Ohio Chapter present. Although I cannot guarantee that we will be able to offer all ideas, we will definitely look into the feasibility of any suggestion. I am looking forward to the 2020 Ohio IAAI Training Seminar, which will take place at the Ohio Fire Academy March 24-25, 2020. Chris Ellis and the Training and Education Committee is currently assembling nationally known instructors to present on current topics within the fire and explosion investigation fields.
The Ohio cChapter is your chapter and we want it to grow and advance, this can only be accomplished with volunteers. So please, all Ohio members think about volunteering. We can only grow and move forward with new volunteers sharing new ideas. If you have never sat on the Board of Directors or a Committee, think about it. The commitment is minimal and your ideas and help will push the Ohio Chapter to greater heights and continue our leadership role within the International Association of Arson Investigators.
