Welcome to the OBI website!

May 1, 2022

I am writing fresh off the OBI Conference high and looking forward to continuing the great success of this wonderful organization. As you know, after much anticipation, OBI hosted its “annual” conference back in April in beautiful Raleigh, NC; it was worth the wait! I hope that everyone who was able to attend enjoyed the conference as much as I did. For those who were unable to attend, the conference material will be uploaded to the OBI website in the coming weeks. Please take advantage of all our website has to offer and do not be afraid to utilize our listserv by emailing: members@barinvestigators.com.

I would like to thank the North Carolina State Bar for their hospitality, their staff who worked tirelessly to put on this conference, and a special thank you to Marty Coolidge, our Planning Committee Chair, who was essential in pulling off a conference that many thought may never happen! One great thing that came from the postponement of the 2020 conference is a relationship established between OBI and the National White-Collar Crime Center (NW3C). NW3C is an organization offering primarily free training to justice practitioners throughout the United States and our members are now eligible for training through NW3C. If you haven’t, check out their website and offerings at www.nw3c.org. I have personally attended and enjoyed several of their virtual trainings and feel they are a great resource. You can create an account using your jurisdiction’s email address. If you have any issues, feel free to contact me for assistance.

OBI doesn’t work unless you do; please consider volunteering your time to support the organization. If you have interest in serving on a committee, reach out to the Board to learn more about what each position entails. We will also be seeking nominations for service on the Board and elections will be held in October. Lastly, we are still looking for potential host cities for upcoming OBI conferences. If you want to showcase your city and assist in the planning of a future OBI conference, please contact the OBI Board for more information!

I would like to wish you all a safe and enjoyable summer!

Jim Easoz
OBI President
