Don’t miss out on the 44th Annual ASCLD Symposium - Continuous Improvement: Leading Through Continuous Learning!


Today’s forensic science leaders must adapt to an ever changing and challenging environment, constantly improving their skills as well as developing and encouraging their employees. Learning and applying new techniques is a critical component to leadership.

Please join us in Dallas, Texas for the ASCLD Symposium from April 30 – May 4, 2017, where ASCLD will provide fresh and innovative techniques to mentor and inspire your employees as you strive to continuously improve your organization.

Throughout the week, crime lab leaders will hear presentations from experts from both within and outside the forensic science arena, providing crime lab leaders with actionable tools and transportable information that can be directly applied to improve their operation.
