The History of NECOSIA
Plans for a regional council of state associations called the New England Council of State Investigative Associations (NECOSIA) began as an idea.
The LPDAM JOURNAL publication in 1998, mentioned the possibility of assisting it’s neighboring states in the formation of their respective state associations. LPDAM has been privileged to offer guidance and assistance to the states of Rhode Island and Connecticut in establishing their professional investigator organizations. In these discussions, we learned that our sister associations shared the same set of goals and objectives and many common problems. In an LPDAM Journal “Presidents Message”, PHIL WHITE alluded to the possibility of a New England Council of State Investigator Associations to bring our profession’s concerns, hopes and aspirations to a round table for discussions. Hopefully, the proffered individual ideas and solutions would benefit the whole.
At a Boston meeting of a group of northeast presidents in November of 1998 that same concept was further discussed.
That idea soon became NECOSIA, through the efforts of many individuals, led by Phil White of LPDAM.
