Good Afternoon Colleagues,


Please kindly distribute this email to your association list serves.  


I am Tina Thomas, the new Region 5 Director for NCISS which includes:  AZ, CO, IA, KS, MN, ND, NE, SD, UT, WI and WY.  I am following in some pretty big footsteps to follow, as Andrea Orozco has been the NCISS Region 5 Director for the last 6 years!  For those of you that do not know me, I have been licensed as a private investigator since 2005, and prior to that I worked with as an Investigative Intern for many years here in Phoenix, Arizona.  I hope to get to know each and every one of you personally and if there are any legislative issues, problems, worries or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me personally.  No concern is too big or too small, and if I do not know the answer, I will get it for you!  The NCISS Board and I need your help in staying ahead of any new laws or potential legislation that affects our industry.  So please keep in touch with me, and I will be checking in with the State Association Department heads frequently.  Finally, NCISS cannot do what it does without the support of each State’s Association and its members in those states.  We need both halves for the best legislative protection.  If anyone is considering joining NCISS, I urge you to do it now!  We have a wonderful 2018 Investigators Super Conference coming up in New York in November and would love for as many to attend as possible.  Details of the conference are here:


Nov 08th-11th in New York City, NY
