2nd vice President on NCIAAI Wayne DeLancey

Wayne DeLancey 2019

To the Membership of the North Carolina Chapter of the International Association of Arson Investigators,

Greetings, when I joined the NCIAAI some 13 years ago I could only imagine a time that I would be able to step up and be able to help mold the character and direction of our chapter.

In 2016 I held a seat on the Board of Directors and since that time I have felt the calling to do more. I now am wanting to serve our members at a higher level, and I am seeking the seat of 2nd Vice President.

As an election to the Executive Board means greater responsibility, I heed the challenge and look only to my past accomplishments and goals from my time on the Board of Directors and my time on various Committees to help guide my direction. My goals were to increase membership, provide more training and assure that the goals of the Association were being met.

We have had an increase in attendance, membership and mostly and more importantly, more trained investigators that have taken our Expert Witness Courtroom Testimony course that I have personally guided and assisted in direction over the past 5 years.

I believe that I have several traits that would make me an ideal selection for the Executive Board position of 2nd Vice President, as with the Expert Witness Course, I understand how to work with multiple agencies in a high pressure environment and still react in a calm and logical manner. I also can plan and implement long term plans while still being flexible enough to adjust to changing environments. My last trait is resolve, the persistence in which I will go to make sure our programs and goals of the organization are met and exceeded.

In closing, I have served as Deputy State Fire Marshal, Law Enforcement officer, Municipal Fire Investigator, Firefighter and Private Investigator for the Insurance industries, I can relate to all groups that make up our great organization and I only hope that you may see that too when you cast your vote.

Thank you and best regards,

H. Wayne DeLancey

2019 NCIAAI Candidate for Fire Service Representative Adam Stanley

Stanley 2019


I have over 29 years experience in emergency services. Over 18 years was dedicated to the City of Raleigh Fire Department where I last served as Captain/Haz-Mat Specialist and Fire Investigator. The past 17 years have been the most satisfying as they have been devoted to conducting origin and cause investigations. Currently and for the last 3 years I have served as the Fire Division Chief/Fire Marshal for Johnston County.

It is my honor to have been nominated for the Fire Services Representative position for our chapter. If elected, I look forward to working with all of our members who share the same passion and goals that will allow us to continue the work of our organization.

My goals are to continue to improve communications within the organization, to make certain that our needs are being heard and met with the added benefit of helping to build and strengthen the relationships between our many agencies.

I also am an advocate for enhancing the training standards and resources so that our knowledge is constantly increasing and that the information we produce and the practices we advocate for are held to the highest standards.

I will continue to work to increase the availability of professional development and training to all our members, which includes our health and wellness which is equally important.

We owe it to the future generations of investigators to continue to seek out ways to improve ourselves and our craft in all aspects.

Thank you,
Adam Stanley
