AMERICAN FORENSICS ASSOCIATION DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD 

The Professional Development and Support Committee of the AFA would like to invite nominations for the AMERICAN FORENSIC ASSOCIATION DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD. AFA will present the award at the annual convention in San Diego in 2008. The Distinguished Service Award recognizes long-term service to the American forensics community. The recipient of the award typically comes from within the forensics community (active or retired). Nominations do not need to be elaborate. When possible, however, a nomination file may include a letter of nomination and the candidate's vita, indicating service and supporting items. Areas of interest to the committee might include items such as: positive impact on the field in terms of current research practices, educational practices, community development, and consideration of career as a model for AFA professionals. 

Nominations should be sent to:
