I hope section members are taking advantage of the extended abstract submission deadline of September 30. There are two awards, the Best Resident Paper Award and the Forensic Biologist Trainee Paper Award, that in the past few years have not had many submissions, and there are years for which the award was not given due to the paucity of submissions. It is not too late to enter papers for these awards before the deadline.
October 1 is the deadline for applications for promotion to Member and Fellow. If you have been an Associate Member or Member for some time and are eligible for promotion, please consider applying, especially if you are interested in participating as an officer in the Pathology/Biology section. The positions of Secretary and Section Chair require that you have attained status of Fellow.
