President's Message


Terry Reilly

Well summer is almost upon us. I want to say thank you to all of our members for helping us with and being patient during our transition from c-vent to the enhanced chapter.  If any of you still have issues with the paying of dues or other concerns please address them to any member of the board.


I recently attended the International training Conference of IAAI in Orlando Florida along with several other members of the board who were able to attend. As a result of awesome instructors we heard, the board is currently working on planning a theme for the 2017 conference of fatal fires with many important ideas and concepts to be taught. We are planning a burn as well as a class on writing your curriculum vitae, CV. We are working with Rainbow to lock down the dates of February 26 to March 1. We always try to go the week after President’s Day so this year it is seems later but it is not.


We are setting a goal as your board to have the entire registration process as well as schedule ready by November 1, 2016, so as to not be last minute registration. The board is also working on a way to submit your name or other names to the nominating committee before conference for open board positions. We would like new faces and fresh ideas. One example of this is our new one year board member Casey Vorwaller. Casey has shared an idea to form a peer review group for those in our association needing reports peer reviewed.  This is being worked on, and just be aware we will be seeking interested volunteers for this group.


As you see we are hard at work getting the association moving and getting ready for  our 2017 conference. The board is going to be doing more to help our members besides just a three day conference, so please feel free to share things you would like to see us help with or make available. We will be sending monthly e mail blasts with updates, training courses and any information you need about the association. Have a safe day and thank you for your service.
