AAFS President John Gerns invites you to join him for the “2016 IEOP Destination: New Zealand” on September 11-18, 2016. Mr. Gerns, along with the Australian New Zealand Forensic Science Society (ANZFSS) president, Dr. Claude Roux, have organized a week-long tour and exchange among forensic science colleagues throughout New Zealand.

The 2016 IEOP details and registration form are readily available through the AAFS website HERE. Forensic science stops will include the New Zealand Police Auckland Forensic Laboratories, the Institute of Environmental Science and Research Limited, the University of Auckland, and a visit to New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington, to name but a few. You’ll also enjoy cultural visits to the Auckland Museum, the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, and Waiheke Island. These stops barely scratch the surface of what is in store! Download the complete brochure HERE and we believe you’ll soon be planning your travels with us to New Zealand! The deadline to sign up for the IEOP is June 30, 2016, so don’t delay!

The 2016 IEOP has been designed to conclude at the time the ANZFSS 23rd  International Symposium begins. For additional information about the Symposium, please visit the ANZFSS website, www.anzfss.org.

Interest in this year’s excursion is strong and space is limited, so you’ll want to secure your place as soon as possible. Please return the documents by June 30, 2016, to njackson@aafs.org.
