For more than 20 years, the American Academy of Forensic Sciences has fostered international travel and professional exchange. The objective of AAFS international travel is to provide opportunities to Academy members (1) to meet with forensic science colleagues, (2) to participate whenever possible in major international forensic science meetings, (3) to visit laboratories as appropriate, and, at the same time, (4) to experience the rich heritages and cultures of the peoples and lands to be visited. AAFS President Mr. John Gerns, invites you to join him on a tour of New Zealand.  The itinerary will include stays in Auckland and New Zealand’s capital city of Wellington. Participants will have opportunities to meet with forensic science colleagues along the way, take advantage of the cultural and historical riches of the country, and attend the Australian New Zealand Forensic Science Society’s (ANZFSS) 23rd International Symposium.

Mr. Gerns, along with the ANZFSS President Dr. Claude Roux have organized the International Educational Outreach Program (IEOP) to immediately precede the ANZFSS conference in Auckland.  If interested in attending, please visit the ANZFSS web site http://anzfss.org/.  Attendance at the ANZFSS symposium is optional and not included in the pricing of the IEOP.  Arrangements to attend should be made through the ANZFSS web site.

Travelers will make their own way to Auckland arriving on September 11, 2016. The IEOP will officially kick off on Monday, September 12.  For complete details and registration, click HERE.
