QD Section Updates

Source: James Green, BS, Section Chair

In support of President Williams' "Justice Talks" series highlighting casework by Academy members, the Questioned Documents Section is scheduled to provide a case episode in November. Please reflect on your casework, past  or present, to find an example of a questioned document case that supported an underrepresented segment of society. Perhaps you had a case that served to exonerate a defendant in a significant criminal case or you may have provided training to colleagues in a disadvantaged country or regional area. Another example may be research by your laboratory that proved valuable and benefited society in some manner.  

Please refer to and review prior Justice Talks articles to see examples from other sections.  

Now that the rush of proposed presentations and workshops for the 2024 conference is over and allows a break for your hardworking Section Program Chairs, Gina Hunter and Brenda Lanners, and Section Workshop Chair, Darla Celentano.  Currently, Secretary Kevin Kulbacki and I are reviewing possible Bylaws updates. If you have thoughts toward developing a new bylaw or believe an existing one could use some wordsmithing, let us know.  

Cheryl Hunter, the Academy's Membership Coordinator, advised membership applications are being processed for their initial review and will be sent to Secretary Kulbacki and me for our review in the near future. We are always eager to have new members join our section. 

Registration is open for the Denver conference. Take a few minutes to review the program and register accordingly. We look forward to seeing you there!
