History of PNAI

A professional organization of licensed investigators incorporated in the State of Washington in 1947.

A History of Service

The Pacific Northwest Association of Investigators (PNAI) was established to assist members with their continuing professional education, to establish goals for professional conduct and behavior by mandating high standards of personal and professional conduct.

This continues to be the primary mission of PNAI and its membership. PNAI is committed to promoting the well-being of the profession and by working in concert with other professional associations, the Washington State Department of Licensing, and Washington State legislators in developing regulations and laws that enhance our profession and protect the public.

PNAI is dedicated to maintaining the highest ethical standards and practices; protection of our profession from unethical individuals or agencies; respect for client dignity, confidentiality, and privileged Information; good fellowship and understanding within the organization; and a presence and legislative effort on behalf of the investigations industry.
