2016 PALI Annual Investigators Conference
Past Conference Testimonials
A tip of the hat and a thank you to Jeff Stein and all who assisted in putting together yet another top notch event. The informative speakers, the educational material, the networking, and the food and drink made for a very enjoyable conference. The support for this conference, by the attending PALI members, and non member PI’s, was great. Those of us who attended realized the benefits that only an event such as this provides. Those of you, who did not attend missed out on an opportunity which comes around only once a year. Hope to see many of you next year.

Okay I gotta say it: The seminar was one fantastic event! I was amazed at all the great topics and presenters. I gleaned a great deal of information from each and every one of them, not to mention the fact that I met some great people! My hat’s off (even though I don’t wear one) to everyone who made this event a success. For those of you who did not attend, consider it for the next one…you will not be disappointed! I think everyone will agree, that for what we paid we got triple the value. I don’t know of any seminar (and I’ve been to hundreds of them) that lasts two days which includes valet parking, early check in and late check out, all the meals, free “refreshments” great vendors and great information for $200.00! Again my congratulations to PALI for an excellent job!

I would just like to take a moment and say I had an amazing time at the PALI seminar. This was my first seminar and I am looking forward to future gatherings and PALI events. It was very nice to put faces to the names of people whom I have talked to over the phone and corresponded through the PALI board. In a personal note, the lectures were amazing and I have personally become aware and excited about getting training and certified in areas of investigation I knew nothing about. Here’s to the future! Looking forward to seeing everyone again at upcoming PALI gatherings.

Dear PALI members,
WOW, and I do mean WOW!!! Those of you who unfortunately missed this years annual seminar in Harrisburg, really missed an exceptional seminar. We had great vendors, exceptional speakers, we had press coverage, we had legislators in house to discuss HR65, and also had a legislator stop by when we were having our mixer Wednesday evening. Our “Thanks” and “Appreciation” go to JEFF STEIN who simply went above and beyond the call of duty on this one, and created a truly informational seminar which was highly praise by those in attendance. The president Of “ISLPA” was at the seminar as a speaker, and informed me that this was the best seminar he has been to this year and in fact for quite sometime. Representative Mike Verebs spoke to us on Tuesday evening, taking time from the floor at the house to come visit and speak to us on HR65. His information answered may of the questions and concerns that some of you had regarding the recent movement of that bill. The ever popular Richard Walters was a speaker and as usual captivated the audience with his expertise on murders and serial killings. He also promoted his new book “The Murder Room” and held a book signing. Also present was Bruce Mowday who spoke on his new book “Jailing the Johnson Gang” The true story of the investigation into the notorious “Johnson Gang” a group of thieves and serial killers. A group that was brought to justice by a joint law enforcement task force which included former FBI agent and PALI member Dave Richter. Mowday also had a book signing. Those are just a few of the highlights of the seminar, the networking with members, both new and old, plus a number of people intending to join added to the overall excitement and social environment for the seminar. We also had some discussions on the issues concerning Marcellus Shale, and how it MAY NOT BE THE GOD SENT many of you/us thought it was. I suggest you all keep and ear to the ground on this one, watch the news, read the papers and stay on top of the issues that may concern you, your business and or your family and property.
Again, we can’t thank Jeff Stein enough for putting all this together, he deserves a huge “ATTA BOY” award not to mention more than a few beers to relax now that it is over and was a great success ;-)

Congratulations to Jeff Stein and his crew for making this THE best PALI conference EVER!!!! I’ve attended every single one of them since the inception of PALI. This was, hands down, like no other conference I’ve attended. It was packed full and I STILL can’t get over what we got for the price. Jeff, you are a class act and all of your hard work paid off! I sure hope you consider doing next year’s conference as well. Congratulations on a job well done.

I can’t help it – I have to say it. This year’s seminar was AWESOME. Jeff rounded up some terrific and dynamic speakers – not a moment was wasted. Nobody’s eyelids drooped, even after lunch!! And it’s always great to see old friends and meet new ones. We have some terrific new members in PALI who are guaranteed to contribute to the mix of services that we can collectively offer our clients. In short, Jeff Stein, BRAVO!
