Full Text: Preparations are in full swing for the 2010 National Conference to be held September 22-24 at the Renaissance Orlando Resort at SeaWorld[R] in sunny Orlando, Florida. Again this year, the ACFEI National Conference will run concurrently with its sister associations, the American Board for Certification in Homeland Security (ABCHS), the American Psychotherapy Association (APA), the American Association of Integrative Medicine (AAIM), and the American College of Counselors (ACC). This unique setting provides exposure to and opportunities to learn from other professional disciplines.

The schedule is filling up with numerous presentations on exciting and relevant topics in the forensic field. Presentation topics include: Is the Confession Admissible?: Assessing a Defendant's Competency to Waive Miranda Rights; Application of the Seven-Step Methodology of Criminal Investigations in Forensic Accounting; Evidence Collection, Preservation, and Presentation: Making Sure Your Evidence Withstands the Litigation Challenges; Agitated-Excited Delirium Syndrome and Sudden Deaths; and many more. You can view the schedule online at www.acfei.com, and the complete schedule will be printed in the summer issue of The Forensic Examiner[R]. In addition, we are proud to announce that ACFEI Chair Dr. Cyril Wecht, Dr. Henry C. Lee, as well as Dr. Greg Vecchi from the FBI's Behavioral Sciences Unit, will be giving keynote addresses during the conference.
