First, I'd like to thank each of you who attended our Spring Conference in Morgantown, West Virginia - your attendance marked our largest Conference to date! We had two hundred and seventy-four (274) individuals registered. And based on the feedback I received, everyone had a terrific time! It was particularly rewarding to see the interaction between the established experts and all of the college students just starting to pursue a career in Forensics. Our outstanding educational program was arranged by Deborah Leben and Tom Gambrill's efforts brought in nineteen (19) vendor participants. There are so many of you who contributed to the success of this Conference. I really appreciate everything that you have done and I know will continue to do to support this organization. CBD-IAI Teamwork made it happen!

The Fall Conference will be held at The Clarion Resort Fontainebleau Hotel in Ocean City, Maryland on November 4th and 5th. The Clarion has a lot to offer including an indoor heated pool, health and spa facilities as well as terrific golf courses just a short distance from the Hotel. This is also a "Dog Friendly" hotel so those of you who like to travel with your pet just let them know when you make your reservations. You can learn more about the amenities at This is a very popular oceanfront hotel so don't forget to make your reservations EARLY for the Fall Conference.

We just returned from the International Conference in Dallas, Texas and CBD-IAI was well represented. We really enjoyed a "Taste of Texas"!

Thanks again for all of your support during my year as President. I hope that you are enjoying this year as much as I am.
