On November 7-8, 2014, the California Association of Criminal Investigators (CACI), an affiliate of the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA), held its annual membership conference at the Embassy Suites in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"With 88 investigators in attendance, we had a record breaking number of registrants," said CACI Vice President Irma Diaz-Martin. "In addition to our annual meeting and training, members and their guests attended the CACI-hosted hospitality room where camaraderie is promoted amongst our diverse membership." At the hospitality room, CACI President Frank Capetillo presented DJ and CACI member Ricardo Gomez a certificate from CSLEA acknowledging his selfless act in donating one of his kidneys to someone in need.
The annual meeting is an opportunity for members to interact with the CACI Board, provide valuable feedback and voice their concerns. CSLEA Director of Member Services Richard Carrillo informed those in attendance of the ongoing efforts of his staff to reach out and visit members at the numerous work sites throughout the state as well as the valuable benefits that CSLEA membership brings. CSLEA Chief Counsel Kasey Clark gave a presentation on the State collective bargaining process and what to anticipate in the upcoming round of negotiations. "We would like to thank Richard and Kasey for providing this invaluable information and training to our members who responded with positive feedback," said Diaz-Martin.
CACI’s Board and volunteers work together throughout the year to plan the annual conference with the purpose of a providing a platform for association involvement, association updates, an exchange of ideas and training.
