Brian Cerchiai, President
Welcome to the FDIAI official website! This site will be your guide to Membership, Training, Resources, and Professional opportunities with employment postings.
Forensic identification, as with any science, is constantly evolving and advancing to better meet the needs of the communities we serve. As part of its mission, the FDIAI prides itself in providing educational seminars, learning opportunities, and its collective resources to assist law enforcement, educators, students, and those engaged in the various phases of scientific identification, stay current on the state of their respective disciplines while reinforcing time proven practices.
With a diverse group of members from Florida, the United States, and worldwide, the FDIAI continues to grow as the largest state chartered division of the International Association for Identification. As an association, the FDIAI’s greatest resource is its members and this website is the perfect place to help you stay connected. The Membership Directory is conveniently sorted by name and agency so that you can easily contact other members by discipline and location. It also provides contact information for the Region Directors and the Science and Practice Sub-Committees, access to publications, upcoming conference information, available training, employment opportunities, scholarship information, and much more.
I encourage all of our members to stay in touch with their Region Directors and keep them informed on items of interest, needs for training, or to volunteer your expertise as a trainer. The Region Directors can easily share these requests and seek guidance from the Board of Directors and the Science and Practice Sub-Committees to ensure that your needs are being addressed. Facebook is also a great way for our members to stay in touch, share, and seek forensic advice.
I am truly honored and excited to be serving the FDIAI as President in 2017. As this association continues to grow on the integrity of members past and present, I am confident, that together, we will continue the legacy of successfully fulfilling our mission. I encourage and challenge all of our members to give a lecture, teach a workshop, share their knowledge, share their experiences, and seek certification in their respective disciplines. I look forward to seeing all of you at the 2017 FDIAI 58th Annual Educational Seminar in Panama City Beach, Florida.
