The purpose of the George T. Pletts Award is to recognize members of the forensic community that promote advancement and growth. It is with great honor that the George T. Pletts award recipient for this year is Cindy Hull. Hull was honored with this prestigious award at the Burlingame Forensic Training Conference in April. Hull has been a vital member of the forensic community and embodies the spirit of George T. Pletts, for her dedication, patience, tenacity and cheerfulness. Congrats again on this tremendous accomplishment!!

President's Message - July/August

Summer! Summer! Summer!

Summer is here and the executive board is very excited about planning the upcoming training seminar located in Palm Springs on May 18-22, 2020. Recently, I visited the Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa and met with the hotel staff of the venue. The resort is a beautiful facility located on a golf course and has a swimming park on sight. I am very excited about providing an educational conference that will provide the best training opportunity, experience and learning environment next year.

In addition to planning a training seminar, our agenda is to attract new members and educate our current membership with various forensic disciplines. As President, I have begun the process of growing our membership by speaking about our program at Southern California colleges/universities and attending forensic training lectures (SCAFO). I look forward to attending additional colleges, police departments and forensic trainings throughout the year.

If there are any specific Association related questions, please do not hesitate to contact the appropriate members of the Executive Board.

Have a great summer!!
