Hello YFSF Attendees!

Young Forensic Scientists Forum (YFSF) Committee Chair Zain Bhaloo and the committee members—Catherine Brown, Brittany Beyers, Hannah Simmons, and Amber Smith—would like to cordially and personally invite you to the YFSF Special Session Networking Break on Tuesday, February 18, to enjoy some cake and stimulating conversation to celebrate the YFSF’s 25th Anniversary! This will be a unique opportunity for all Special Session attendees, and many others, to meet colleagues, peers, and mentors from the varying sections, perhaps for the first time, in a comfortable, welcoming, and personalized setting. The YFSF is the perfect venue for young forensic scientists to meet and mingle with respected and established members of the individual sections of the Academy, but the YFSF attendees also possess a wealth of knowledge and experience they have acquired in the course of their education and early career trajectory. These one-on-one interactions are hard to achieve at the general events and, as such, are invaluable to those who may be attending as junior scientists, first-time attendees, or even returning attendees seeking to join the AAFS. Your presence would go a long way, and your advice and mentorship would go even further!

Also, following the last speaker, please feel free to join us for a resume building and interview prep session where attendees will bring their resumes for advice on how to fine tune them and how to master interviewing skills to help them get the career of a lifetime!

Thanking you in advance and looking forward to seeing you in Anaheim!

Kindest Regards,
2020 YFSF Committee
