President’s Message

AIG President, Melinda Miguel

Hello AIG Members and Friends,

I am pleased to report that our recently completed 2013 Summer Institute in Jacksonville, Florida was a tremendous success.  Once again we had over 100 attendees, and the demand for our certification and training programs continues to grow. We work hard to ensure that our Institutes remain state of the art, and provide up-to-date, cutting edge information essential for all inspectors general, auditors and investigators. I am so proud of the instructors and Board of Director members who volunteer their time, to work on our Institutes. Their selfless dedication to the Association and our Institute is simply incredible.

We now are turning our attention to our upcoming conference in New Orleans from November 5-8th. This year’s conference theme is: “How To: Practical Tips for IGs.” The presentations focus on providing the practical foundations for implementing inspector general initiatives. Conference attendees will be able to take back to their offices information on an array of issues including: working with community leaders, working with the US Attorney’s office, using mobile devices in investigations, and utilizing electronic workpapers and geomapping software. Also, for the first time, we are offering a pre-conference workshop on Tuesday, November 5, 2013, on conducting evaluations and performance audits. You will not want to miss this. Here is a link to the conference web page:

The Association’s New Orleans’ conference promises to be the highlight of year. I hope to see you there!
