American Professional Network of Affiliated Investigators – APNAI - is established to bring together an affiliation of professional investigators and raise the bar through Networking & Referrals, Mentoring, & Continuing Education Support. Our trade faces challenges and confusion regarding state regulation, maintaining the highest professional standards, the importance of mentoring our new private investigators, and improving client interaction. Continuing Education Support cannot be overstated. Like other industries, we must face and overcome challenges if our trade is to move to the next level. When we don't learn more, we have less to pass along. These are the goals and principles behind APNAI - American Professional Network of Affiliated Investigators. We at APNAI invite you to affiliate with us and join us in our journey to be of great benefit to all private investigators.

(05/01/2018) Federal Way, WA) American Professional Network of Affiliated Investigators | APNAI - or Affiliated Investigators - reports today its Membership Incentives Program is a rousing success!! A total of eight private investigators from WA PI associations have joined Affiliated Investigators. APNAI waives the first year's dues for current or former members of the two WA based associations who join or switch their memberships.

According to APNAI President, Clint Colvin, "We're finding that members drop their membership with PI organizations for various reasons. Work, be it surveillance at night or other professional  commitments, and family responsibilities, pull at the professional private investigator's time. PI association membership status is jeopardized after missing meetings regardless of the reason. Others are tired of the drama and personality conflicts that drive members away from the association scene all together. Fortunately, many vibrant and highly professional associations exist throughout the USA.

"We recognize many private investigators simply don't have the time to commit to monthly or quarterly meetings, and Affiliated Investigators takes that reality into account. We're also building a group of professionals who really want to raise the bar of professional behavior in this industry.

"We salute private investigators who seek support from their contemporaries, as well as those helping new private investigators in learning the trade. Private Investigators coming over to APNAI are welcomed, thanked for all they do - and we ask how can we help them."
