Welcome to the Missouri Division of the IAI
Dear members of the Missouri Chapter of the International Association of Identification:
I hope everyone is well. Due to current events that I’m sure everyone is aware of, I wish to inform everyone that our annual educational conference for the year 2020 is being rescheduled for October 22nd and 23rd. The location of the conference will remain at the Lodge of Four Seasons in Lake Ozark, Missouri. I sincerely hope that our members will be more likely to attend a gathering in the fall. We are still working to ensure that the conference will be informative and fun for our members. Please save the date and I’ll see you in October!
P.O. Emily Yim, CCSI

Letter from the President
Greetings MO IAI members. After an unexpected career opportunity arose for our past President James Yim, he retired from his position as an Evidence Technician at the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, and was required to vacate his position as President of the MO IAI, which he did so reluctantly. As the First Vice President, I am taking over the responsibilities. My name is Emily Yim, and I am an 18 year veteran of the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, with the past 6 years of my career being spent in the Crime Laboratory as an Evidence Technician and Certified Crime Scene Investigator. My current goal is to help make our Spring Educational Conference successful. This year’s 2-day conference will be held once again at the Lodge of Four Seasons in Lake Ozark, Missouri, on Thursday, April 16 through Friday, April 17th. We have several interesting and unique lecturers lined up to give presentations this year. With the time drawing ever near to have all the details of the Conference ironed out, I am sending out a plea to all of our members for ideas to continue to make our Educational Conferences successful and to continue to serve all of our members in a beneficial way. We need involvement and input from our members in order to be a useful and successful organization. Would you or anyone you know would be interested in serving on the Board or presenting as a speaker at a future conference? Is there a topic your Department would like training in, or is there something specific you would like a refresher on? Let us know! I welcome any and all suggestions and involvement from our members. Remember, serving on the board or presenting a lecture at a conference looks great on your C.V. and could assist you in obtaining further accolades when it comes to applying for certifications. Also, we are always looking for new members. If there are new lab or crime scene employees in your department, help us spread the word and recruit new members! I would like to thank all of the current board members for pulling together through some adverse times and helping me organize this year’s conference. I am confident it will be informative and fun. I hope to see you there!
P.O. Emily Yim, CCSI
