An updated AAFS Policy and Procedure Manual has been posted to the website here. The Table of Contents is linked to the appropriate pages in order to ease the navigation. The 2020–21 Board of Directors approved the following: 

  • New introductory information under “Section 6. – Committee Activities” that clarifies standard operating protocols
  • Clarification of standard operating protocols under “7.1.1. Section Officers’ Manual – Introduction
  • Updates to sections “2. Membership” and “7. Section Activities” as reported in the Criminalistics, Digital & Multimedia Sciences, Jurisprudence, and Toxicology Sections Annual Business Meeting Minutes
  • New Diversity and Inclusion Statement (1.1.4.)
    This statement is based on the Anthropology Section’s Diversity and Inclusion Statement (7.5.1.II.) that was developed by the Anthropology Section’s Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Committee. We’d like to recognize the D&I Committee for their foresight and tremendous contribution.
