Full Text: There is a lot to be excited about this year with the journal--our art director has worked diligently to create a new layout that ! hope you will find more navigable, visually appealing, and reflective of the quality of our association. We at The Forensic Examiner[R] hope to hear plenty of feedback from both our members and nonmembers, as the journal is available to both. This is the readers' journal, and it is up to you to tell us how we're doing--you are its backbone!

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

As a peer-reviewed scientific journal first and foremost, we also want to share the knowledge of our members and their peers with the widest audience possible. As we continue to experience positive growth, we expect to increase our circulation and, in turn, recruit members, receive more manuscripts, ideas, communication, and all of the things that come together to make this journal--and ACFEI--great. The journal has come a long way since its inception nearly years ago, and we have high hopes for its continued growth in the future.

I would also like to thank all of the contributing authors--you were all very professional and enjoyable to work with, which really helped this issue take shape and become the fine product it did. I look forward to continuing to work with everyone in the future, as well as to see the journal reach even greater heights. It is truly a joy, and I am very thankful for the opportunity to serve you!

Sincerely,

CHRISTOPHER POWERS, Editor in Chief

I hope you are enjoying the new look and layout of our magazine! We have so many wonderful changes happening within ACFEI. In 2010, we are continuing to improve our programs, increase our continuing education opportunities, and provide you with the best conference presentations in the field. In this special conference issue, you can read the biographies of the conference keynote speakers, check the complete conference schedule, and find out more information about the host hotel. As an added benefit to you, we are offering a chance to win a FREE conference registration for the 2011 conference. To have ACFEI staff reserve your hotel rooms over the phone, call (800) 423-9737 x 168.

Also, please consider joining me our networking luncheon at conference (addition $25 registration required) featuring attorney John Romano from Romano Law Group. Attendees of the lunch meeting on Thursday, September 23, will enjoy a more casual environment of networking while dining on a delicious meal. Mr. Romano will then present on "Real Reasons Why Jurors Accept One Expert While Utterly Rejecting Another." You can add your luncheon registration at any time by calling our office.

I'd like to thank each and every one of our members for your loyalty and support of our association. We continue to gain many of the world's most outstanding practitioners in our membership and continue to lead the world in promoting ethical practices, implementing field standards, and increasing general professionalism.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (800) 423-9737 or by e-mail at cao@acfei.com with your ideas, comments, and feedback. I would love to hear from you! I look forward to continuing to serve your professional needs.
