2023 INVESTIGATOR'S CONFERENCE
The Investigator's Conference is back by popular demand! This time we are meeting in the Classic City (Go Dawgs!) to dive into the world of investigations. We will cover an array of subjects each picked to support your role as an Investigator (specific to investigators within the DA's office).
If you are not a Dawgs fan that's okay, Athens has plenty to offer such as unique dining options, and the best part is everything you need is within walking distance. Don't miss this opportunity! Come train with us and use this opportunity to connect with other professionals throughout the state.
