NEAFS Training Scholarship Forms:
New England Division of the International Association for Identification (NEDIAI) Annual Meeting
November 16-18th, 2015 in Burlington, VT
Call for Speakers!
Preparations are underway to make this year’s NEDIAI Annual Educational Conference a great training opportunity for everyone. This year's conference will be held November 16-18, 2015 at the Hilton in Burlington, Vermont. Rachel Lemery, Mike Hutchinson and I are the technical program coordinators this year and we are seeking presenters to make this year’s conference a success.
Over the past few years we have had excellent technical and scientific programs, our thanks goes out to Rachel Lemery and Alicia Wilcox for their dedicated service as program coordinators during last year’s meeting. The NEDIAI prides itself on offering low cost, specialized, and needs specific training. We see this as a primary goal of our organization. Past conferences have seen international, national and New England experts share their knowledge and experience with our members.
We would like to carry on the tradition of tailoring some of the training to those who respond to smaller crime scenes; the patrol officer or small department detective. We are looking for a series of short lectures on various forensic disciplines (e.g. evidence collection, crime scene photography, trace evidence, footwear/tire, latent prints, toolmarks, and bloodstain patterns). We are also looking for some case studies, as this is a great way to learn from each other by seeing how our colleagues do things. Start thinking of cases you have worked in the past, research projects, validation studies etc. that you can share with us.
Obviously, without presenters there would be no conference. We are all extremely busy and have backlogs, deadlines and court to deal with, but PLEASE consider dedicating a little time to prepare and present a short lecture or workshop. You can even co-present to share the work. By presenting, you benefit our membership and the experience is important for personal professional development.
If you are interested in presenting, please email us an abstract of your presentation or workshop. The NEDIAI is relying on a certain number of you to step forward and help educate our members and guest attendees (future members).
