I am truly honored to assume the duties of President of the CSFS for the ensuing year. My intentions are to continue to build on the great work and successes of my predecessors to increase the value that the Society brings to its members. Great work has been done enhancing our image with a new dynamic logo and a modernized website. I hope for our website to eventually become an online hub for our members to interact and exchange ideas.
Aside from our regular business, it will be a busy year for our Society. First, I am pleased to announce that I will be leading the organization of the next CSFS conference which will be held from April 30th to May 4th 2018 in the Ottawa area (venue to be confirmed). My organizing committee will be working hard to put together a successful and energetic conference that will bring relevant content to our members and the Canadian forensic community. Secondly, thanks to the significant efforts of Mr. Tobin Tanaka, the CSFS will be hosting a special scientific session at the IAFS conference in Toronto in August.
Thank you to all of our members for partnering with us and welcome to all new members that have recently joined our great Society.
