NYWFIA Sister Organization - LAIOG


I'm happy to welcome you to this website, and hope it provides you with all the information you desire about the New York Welfare Fraud Investigator's Association.

Whether you are a member of NYWFIA, involved in the welfare fraud field, or merely surfing the web, this site should provide a lot of information about our organization.

This site gives contact information and details about our Executive Board and Regional Representatives, and has our bylaws attached to the membership page. It gives details of one of our two yearly events, our June Training Seminar, or our Fall Regional Trainings. The site also allows you to pay for yearly membership, and pay for merchandise at our events. The Newsletter drop down gives you access to our current and past newsletters with information regarding the hard work our members do to fight fraud, as well as legislative and membership news.

Most importantly, the website puts the organization and it's events at your fingertips. We hope that our open lines of communication make us stronger, as our success is truly derived from our membership. I hope you will attend the trainings, become involved in NYWFIA, and encourage a colleague to join.

I also hope that you will participate in our member's only LinkedIn group, and check out our lighter side on the Facebook NYWFIA site. The linked in group has news articles posted frequently, all related to our common goals of preventing waste and abuse in our public welfare programs.

I look forward to continuing the great work done by my predecessors, and our partners at the State level. The key to our organization's greatness is the collaboration it allows between us, as we together are smarter than any one of us is individually- though some of you are exceedingly smart.

John Melville, President
