You have probably heard that the Professional Private Investigators Association of Colorado is having a celebration conference – and you are invited. Perhaps you have already been thinking about attending the conference, but just haven’t decided. I understand that a lot plays in the decision making process – but time is running out to save money and register early. Times are tough; the conference committee has extended the early registration and kept the conference fee low with a venue that is inexpensive. We want this to be a HUGE celebration of all the accomplishments over the past couple years – from defeating HB 1012 to passing HB 1196, our (your) 34 year effort to see licensing return to Colorado for professional PIs!
By registering early, you will immediately add value to the conference. I have one additional favor to ask – pass this email on to a friend and colleague, ask them to attend and pass it on to anyone that could be interested and benefit.
To make it easy, you can copy and paste this link into your email and it will take them right to this online flyer:
The venue has several amenities, including being close to Denver and DIA, as well as a full breakfast each morning and cocktail hour every early evening, complimentary with your stay at Embassy Suites.
That’s not all…conferences are about learning and networking, and is one of the times per year that we look forward to having as many PPIAC members as possible together, as well as our friends and colleagues from all over. It is a way to network locally, throughout Colorado and nationally, from one meeting. I have seen cases referred during breaks, lunch and last year the banquet.
This year is the inaugural year of the PI Museum on Wheels! Ben Harroll and his wife Gloria have been to the conference in California and TALI. I have talked to Ben extensively on the phone and have been intrigued by the knowledge he has of PI history, and of that in Colorado. He and Gloria want to celebrate the successes of 2011 with us! I met him at TALI and left in awe of all I learned about our profession and the history he brought with him to display!
Our speakers include Jimmie Mesis (PI Magazine), Steve Farese (Attorney, Mississippi), Steven Rambam (Pallorium / PallTech, Bronx NY), IRB Search, Tim Schmolder (Timeline Investigations, Golden CO), Rory McMahon CLI CFE (McMahon & Associations, Ft. Lauderdale FL), Brig. Gen. (ret) Rashid Malik (WAD Chairman, Pakistan). View all of our speakers, topics and bios at http://ppiac.org/uncategorized/conference-speaker-bios
A conference is no fun if you don’t walk away with something. Well, we’ll do our best to make sure you have something. We have donated books, donated books signed by authors, restaurant gift cards, vendor prizes and much more to give away. The National Association of Investigative Specialists – Lawmate America / SpyTek have again donated many prizes – gadgets and gear for the PI. Additional renowned authors of our profession have donated autographed books, and more. Don’t forget that IRB Search, JJ Associates International, PI Magazine, PI Store, CRC Press, Pursuit Magazine (an online Private Investigator Magazine) / PI Education have donated prizes and are sponsoring and/or vendors for the conference! This conference has also been approved for 8.5 hours of CE by NALI.
Please consider joining us to network, learn and share or even as either a vendor or sponsor – or both. We have conveniently placed it near Denver International Airport at the Embassy Suites, which provides free shuttle services to and from the airport for your convenience. Details are at: Embassy Suites at DIA (think free happy hour drinks and breakfast daily). Rooms are $119/night and need to be booked by calling Embassy Suites at DIA direct at (303) 574-3000 and tell them “PPIAC Conference” (using Priceline or other online services will NOT get these deals)!
Also, if you have a book, product or service to donate to the PPIAC raffle – let me know.
The PPIAC conference page has all of the details at http://ppiac.org/training/annual-conference.
