Welcome to the FDIAI official website!
Please take advantage of this website as a way to stay in contact with other members, post and view job opportunities, find training courses, view resources, and register for the conferences.
The forensic sciences are being challenged more and more often. The way we are reporting our findings and representing our opinions in court are evolving to meet these challenges. As Albert Einstein once said “Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them”. As the forensic sciences advance, our disciplines will become stronger and we will continue to be the voice for the victims, witnesses and defendants using science as our basis. Remember that as a member of the forensic science community, you have a voice in this change. Remain vigilant in what is happening within your discipline by visiting the NIST OSAC website and the various registries where standards and guidelines are open for public comment and viewing. Your opinion matters and should be heard as things change in your disciplines.
As members of the FDIAI, please reach out to your Regional Director or myself to let us know what training you need and want to see at our conferences and throughout the year or if you would like to volunteer as a presenter. You can also join our Facebook group (Florida Division of The IAI) to share information and keep in touch. We are here for you! You are the reason why we are so great!
As the 2017-2018 President of the FDIAI, I want to thank all of you for being members and attending our conferences! We are proud to have approximately 1,000 members and be the largest Division of the International Association for Identification! We also provide a 40 hour annual educational conference that provides lectures and workshops in various forensic disciplines that is highly attended from members in Florida and throughout the United States. I encourage all of our members to share their knowledge and experiences. I also encourage all of our members to seek certification in their respective disciplines.
I look forward to seeing all of you at the 2018 FDIAI 59th Educational Training Conference in Orlando, Florida!
Dr. Christine Snyder
