Illinois Association of Technical Investigators hosts an annual conference in Springfield, Illinois typically around late September or early October. The conference is three days long, beginning on Wednesday and ending on Friday. An evening reception greets guests the night before the conference begins, and allow guests the opportunity to check in early and receive their welcome packet. Above all, it is a great time to enjoy hors d’oeuvres while mingling with other guests or network with experts in your area.


Event Details

Conference Features

The conference features training seminars that are related to trending issues in the industry. Seminar topics are selected from feedback throughout the year. Live crash testing is the highlight of the conference. Three different crash scenarios were planned this year and were aimed to recreate some common types of crashes. The scenarios were an offset head-on, a rear end and a rollover crash. All testing was performed on a closed city street. This setting created an excellent means for real-world analysis. Each test was documented using multiple video recorders, drones, scanners, and electronic devices. At the conclusion of testing, this data is collected and analyzed before being presented the following day. In other words, this type of training provides a great way to associate classroom theory with real-world experiences.

ACTAR Credits

In need of ACTAR continuing education units (CEUs)? Well, attend the conference. Any guest who is ACTAR accredited will have their training sent to ACTAR, at the conclusion of the conference. However, the guest must complete the appropriate ACTAR paperwork at the conference to be eligible.

Evening Events

Not every event focuses on learning. For instance, a BBQ cook-off was held this year and all guests were invited to attend! The dinner included great food, fine drinks, and a variety of music for no extra cost.  The food was a huge success; however, it was not as popular as karaoke! Additionally, the BBQ cook-off was a great opportunity to mingle with guests and vendors or network with other experts in your area.
