2017 WSATI Southern Chapter President Heather Roberts (Liberty Mutual SIU) welcomed everyone to the meeting at the Malloy Racing Collection in Corona.   If you didn't make it to the Training Meeting, you missed out on your chance to see this amazing collection of unique vintage race cars and historical memorabilia that can only be seen by invitation.

Heather lead the attendees in the pledge of allegiance. 

Other Southern Chapter Officers who were in attendance:

Vice President Jeff Enfield (LASD/TRAP)
Secretary Mick O'Neill (Hagerty Insurance SIU)
Treasurer Mike Stefanoff (CHP/OCATT)
Sergeant at Arms Johnny Miyasaki (Long Beach Police)
Legal Counsel Richard Knapp (Knapp & Spurlock, LLP) 

Associate Director Rob Midzuno (Nationwide Insurance SIU), Associate Director Alan Skobin (LASD/TRAP), and Associate Director Melissa Somers (CPP of SoCal) were unable to attend the Meeting.

WSATI Southern Chapter Past Presidents in attendance were introduced:

Skip Davidson (1991), Ted Saraf (1992), Dennis Frias (1997), Gary Labb (2000), and Tim Jackson (2014)

Heather then introduced Guest Speaker Richard Knapp, Knapp and Spurlock, LLP.  Richard gave a presentation on "Working Separately Together: The Rules of Information Sharing Between Claim and Criminal Investigations."  This appeared to be a popular topic that brought a lot of interaction and questions from the attendees.

Following Richard's presentation, Heather had the attendees do self introductions.   Webmaster Gary Labb (Santa Ana Police / OCATT [Retired]) spoke about the networking encrypted roster available to the attendees via the WSATI website.  Gary gave the password to the attendees.

Following the self introductions, Heather announced that the Santa Maria Style Bar-B-Que was ready for everyone to enjoy.  Everyone helped themselves to the tri-tip, chicken, hot links, salad, potato salad, beans, rolls, and cookies.  Everyone appeared to enjoy and some took a trip back for seconds....  A big thank you to the "Iron Chefs," Johnny Miyasaki, Jeff Enfield, Joe Starbird, and Mike Carnakis for helping to prepare the meal. 

Following the luncheon, the raffle was conducted by Mick O'Neill and Joe Starbird.  The raffle helps raise money for WSATI funds that assist in putting on future seminars, as well as supporting events such as the San Diego and Orange County ATAC Vehicle Theft Recovery Officer of the Year programs.   Was I the only one who thought Dick Sartor seemed to hold every winning ticket?

There were several new faces that came to the meeting, as well as several "old" members who had not been to the meetings in some time.  Thank you all for your attendance.

Heather announced the next meeting / luncheon would be held on January 18, 2018 in Cerritos.  The Guest Speaker has not yet been confirmed.  Please check back here for the future posting of the Guest Speaker information.

2018 WSATI Southern Chapter Officers will be installed at the January 2018 Meeting.

The Crime Prevention Program of Southern California's Annual John Hootman Memorial Award will be presented at the January 2018 Meeting.

The meeting was adjourned. 

Most of us had the opportunity to go check out the many cars and memorabilia inside of the Malloy Racing Collection either before or after the meeting.  Thank you to the Malloy Foundation for being gracious hosts.  For photos from the Malloy Racing Collection, please click here
