Dear CPIO Members and Industry Stakeholders:
It is with great pride that I accept the position of President of CPIO. This provincial organization has become and will continue to be of great value to our members and the professional investigation industry.
As CPIO President I would like to introduce you to some of our areas of focus over the next few years. I look forward to having more discussions with our membership about these and other ideas to make us a stronger voice for Ontario’s professional investigation sector. These focus areas include enhanced professional development, member promotion and communication; partnership collaboration; and special events and networking opportunities. All of these areas will be of great benefit as we enter this new decade.
New initiatives over the last year such as the production of the print and online CPIO Member Directory and the enhanced website have helped us to promote not only CPIO members but the profession at large. In continuing to explore new marketing initiatives for 2020, we will be looking at several social media platforms to allow our members to publish information and make relevant contributions on our website. This will keep industry professionals connected and informed.
Networking events like F.I.T and The Anatomy of an Investigation will continue to be focal points for 2020. We are proactively promoting the CPIO and its membership through sponsorship and participation in industry events hosted by the OIAA, CASIU, and various legal/law associations. Our successful collaboration with the ACFE-GTA on the delivery of excellent programming and networking will continue in 2020. A special thanks to Peter Grace, past president along with past board members, Domenic Sturino; Wayne Sullivan and Martin Jaeckel, for their tireless efforts and contributions to CPIO last year.
The upcoming year will be fantastic for CPIO and I look forward to working with our members and stakeholders. Please send me your suggestions and comments as your input is an integral part of the common goal to grow our organization in 2020 and beyond.
