A Note from the YFSF Secretary January 2015 News Update

Disclaimer: The views and opinions expressed in the articles contained in the Academy News are those of the identified authors and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of the Academy.

The AAFS 67th Annual Scientific Meeting is quickly approaching; hopefully, your travel arrangements have already been made. If not, remember that hotel accommodations become limited the closer we get to the meeting; therefore, it is imperative you book your room as soon as possible. Not sure where to stay? Look on the AAFS website (http://aafs.org/meetings/2015), and click the accommodations button.

The annual meeting is also a wonderful opportunity to introduce yourself to future employers and coworkers, so keep this in mind as you attend the receptions and the employment forum. It is a good idea to carry copies of your curriculum vita (CV) and/or business cards and to dress for the occasion, as you never know who you may meet! Please feel free to stop by the Young Forensic Scientists Forum’s Bring Your Own Slides and the Bring Your Own Posters Sessions. These events are open to all registered meeting attendees and are a great opportunity to meet new people and see what your peers are doing.
