It is my distinct pleasure and honor to serve you this year. Together we will face challenges and solve problems and move this association forward with confidence and transparency. I encourage you all to look forward to the year ahead and plan your involvement in MAFS and how you personally can grow this association. Prepare to attend the Annual Meeting in Des Moines, Iowa. Plan to present some interesting casework or research while at the meeting. Recruit a fellow scientist to join the association. Serve on a committee. Consider running for a board position. Suggest or request training in a topic that interests you and your colleagues. There are many things that we can each do individually to help expand the knowledge of our fields.
like to thank Past-president, Malinda
Spangler, for this past year of leadership. Malinda has served MAFS for many years, but this past year
as president was her finest term. MAFS is in a better place
because of her tireless service.
like to thank all the outgoing board and committee members. This association
would not function as well as it does without the countless volunteer hours that
are provided by all of you. Thank you for
serving and please encourage those around you to get
you all again for your confidence in me as your leader for this year. I am not
serving alone. I have a tremendous board and a full slate of committees that do all
the heavy lifting. Together we are here
to serve the membership.
your passion for forensics shine through in the quality work you provide.
Christmas and Happy New Year!
