Our Chapter
Upcoming Meetings & Events

The New England Chapter of the International Association of Special Investigation Units is a non-profit organization made up of insurance industry fraud investigators, state and federal employees, law enforcement, fire, and other anti-fraud personnel from both the private and public sectors who are dedicated to fighting insurance fraud throughout New England.

We strive to provide the highest level of education and training to our members while promoting awareness of the insurance fraud problem here in the Northeast.  Through our relationship with our International parent organization (IASIU) we are able to offer industry recognized certification programs and continuing education credits for both these programs as well as some state mandated CEUs for adjusters.


We welcome you to learn more about our organization and join the fight against insurance fraud.

Webinar: Who Is The Fraudster: Piercing the Corporate Veil

Jan 14, 2021 11:00 AM EST

Fraudsters shield themselves behind the protections of corporate status to insulate themselves not just from liability but also from investigative efforts, from interviews to subpoenas. Senior Investigator David Kotenreuther and Prosecutor Michael Shirk with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation will examine the means by which to ascertain the true entity behind fraud schemes and pierce the corporate veil in order to more precisely focus investigations and ascertain the entity to be held accountable. COMPLEXITY LEVEL: Moderate.

Prosecutor Michael Shirk and Senior Investigator David Kotenreuther were the recipients of IASIU "Public Service" award for 2020.
