Update From the FALI Board
Saturday, August 6, 2016
This past weekend, we completed the FALI-U and FALI Bootcamp in
Cocoa Beach. Both were extremely successful, and had the highest
attendance since we began to offer these free professional educational
programs to the members 3 years ago.
in our quarterly meeting, while in executive session, the board received
the unexpected resignations of two area directors, Ollie Phipps from
the Orlando area, and Ann Tenpenney from
the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale area. FALI respects their decisions, greatly
appreciates their contributions to the association, and wishes each of
them continued success. Their respective positions have already been filled on an interim basis, until the next general election in the Spring.
In addition, Alan Moffatt has been removed by the Board and is no longer serving as President. I will be filling this position for the remainder of the current term ensuring that FALI will continue with business as usual. As always, we encourage any qualified member who is interested in running for a position on the Board of Directors to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although FALI is in a remarkably strong financial position, as we have amassed in excess of $100k in revenues, the board decided to retain a CPA to perform a comprehensive 4-year audit of all our financial records. The Board thought this was advisable to
assure we are being careful stewards of the membership’s funds, and to
secure any recommendations to improve our current policies and
procedures. As with all FALI financials, members are entitled to review
the CPA’s final report and recommendations and it will be posted on the
website immediately upon receipt.
board is very satisfied that FALI continues to grow and prosper with
our membership now almost 800 strong, making us at least the third, and
likely the second, largest Association of Private Investigators in the
entire United States!
