President’s Letter
As we progress through the chapter year we are well on our way towards achieving GOLD again this year. I have
kept our District Director (Chuck Short) informed of our progress along the way and he was truly impressed by all of
work that our chapter volunteers have made to date. Chuck was especially impressed with our chapter website
(http://www.tampabayiia.org/) which allows chapter members to keep abreast of the seminars and activities
throughout the year. Please be sure to check out the website if you have not already done so.

I would like to personally thank all of those who attended the October seminar at Palma Ceia Country Club. The bulk
of the feedback on the seminar has been very positive regarding both the new location and the topics presented. I
encourage each of you to contact any of the officers/governors (or volunteers) regarding any additional feedback you
may have regarding any facet of the seminar. The chapter volunteers are committed to making every effort to
incorporate your feedback into the next seminar. As you know, one of my personal goals as President is to continue
to elevate the quality of the training provided. As a chapter, our officers and volunteers are also well aware of our
primary mission to educate and to promote our profession. On a side note, I also want to extend a special thanks to
Kate Head for another outstanding ACL seminar. Kate’s volunteer work continues to make a profound impact on the
chapter.

We have made some progress towards our membership goals during the last several months but we still need each of
your help to attain the targeted 10% net increase. The most effective way to achieve this goal is through “value
added” educational programs and our network of existing IIA members. Although we have members from a large
number of employers in the area, there are still are number of companies with audit departments that are not
represented within the IIA.

I look forward to seeing each of you at the December seminar. Please check out the website for the details on the
topic and location. In addition, each of you can help out by spreading the word on the training to potential new
members (bring them along with you to the seminar). Please feel free to contact me directly at (941) 907-7608 or via
e-mail at bmakowski@fcci-group.com.



Thank you.

Brian Makowski

forensic psychophysiologist with the Central Intelligence Agency. He holds a BA from Providence
College, a degree in Law Enforcement from the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, a degree in
Forensic Psychophysiology from the CIA and currently conducts advanced research in criminal
interviewing and interrogation through Salve Regina University.

Mr. Morrissette is currently an instructor with the State of Rhode Island and is responsible for the
training of investigators in the field of criminal interviewing and interrogation. In addition to the State of
Rhode Island, he provides training, lecturing and consulting services for organizations throughout the
United States and Canada. Throughout his career, he has conducted over ten thousand hours of criminal

      An all-inclusive International Conference 2002 package
