Kristina Whalen suggested that I contact you about posting the job
announcement for the Chico Director of Forensics Position on the NDT/CEDA
list serve. I would greatly appreciate it if you could do so. I don't want
to personally join the list-serve as I am no longer active in forensics (in
fact not for about 20 years) and I don't need to receive e-mails from the
organization. In fact, we are specifically asking for hard copy
applications, as our e-mail system tends to get overwhelmed with spam and
sometimes legitimate messages never make it through the spam filter. 

If you need to verify anything, I can be reached at this e-mail address or
at my office phone (530) 898-6052.

Here is the job announcement:
