President's Message

Presidents Message

Welcome Members and Guests,

My name is Julie Mead and as your 2015-2016 WAI President, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your continued support and dedication.  I am both humbled and honored to represent the WAI during this, our Semicentennial year.  Without members like you, people dedicated to science, education, crime scene, evidence and just plain good police work, the WAI would not be what it is today.

We will be celebrating our 50th year at our annual educational conference being held March 2016 in beautiful Green Bay.  Please contact me, any of the board or officers if you have any suggestions or comments in regards to topics, break-out sessions or vendors and we will do our best to accommodate your suggestions. 

I looked back to 50 years ago, when in 1966, Andrew Kashuba took the reins as first president of the WAI.  Although our objectives remain the same, new technology and innovative equipment has allowed us to obtain a future our predecessors could only have dreamed of.  Just think what another 50 years will bring…

Stay safe my friends.                                                                                                      

Julie Mead

WAI President
