The Northwest Fraud Investigator's Association offers two conferences each year. These conferences are held in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia (Canada). Any NWFIA member or their agency/business may host a conference. There are NO COSTS, just your time, to host a conference.
If you are considering hosting an NWFIA conference please feel free to contact any member of the Executive Board. You can also check out the Conference Manual on-line. This is a step-by-step guide on how to put on a successful NWFIA conference.
Your annual membership of $95.00 provides you the opportunity to register/attend two training events a year. Travel and Hotel costs are at attendee expense.
The conferences are designed to keep the membership up-to-date on new fraud trends as well as investigative strategy and techniques. The Fall Conference is generally held between September and early November and the Spring Conference between late March to early May. The conference venue is open to suggestion by each conference committee. Information about specific investigations, wanted persons and fraud in general can be shared at each of the conferences. Some information presented at conferences may be sensitive in nature, so members are expected to use good judgment and discretion. This is a great opportunity to network with your fellow investigators.
