Fellow Polygraph Examiners,
On behalf of the South Carolina Association of Polygraph Examiners, I hope this letter finds you well.
As our numbers grow each year, so does this association’s efforts to maintain the highest level of professionalism within our chosen field of expertise. The board has worked tirelessly to attract new and interesting presenters for our association meetings, and to make our meetings a place to connect, network, and to have fun. And I believe the Board has succeeded.
For our first meeting on March 28, 2014, Billy Thompson, Director of the Maryland Institute of Criminal Justice, will be providing us instruction in regards to the latest Countermeasure Techniques. For our second meeting on November 7, 2014, Dr. Jennifer Vendemia, Psychology Professor at the University of South Carolina, will be sharing her phenomenal research into methods of detecting deception. The association is also negotiating with our sister associations in Georgia and North Carolina to hold a 2 day seminar in Atlanta this year, and we will pass that information along as soon as it becomes available.
The Board has also been working in other areas to maintain our professional status. Our Vice-President, Brian Godfrey, continues to maintain and update our new and improved website with the latest information regarding the association. If you have not visited the site, I encourage you to do so. If you are a SCAPE member, you are given access to restricted areas which contain additional information that will be of use.
If you are not a member of the South Carolina Association of Polygraph Examiners, I implore you to check out our site at www.scpolygraph.com. There you will find all of the information for the upcoming training, membership information, employment opportunities, and even a promotional area for examiners available to conduct private examinations.
The Board and I are open to any suggestions to make this association even better. Please feel free to contact any of us if you have any questions or concerns. All of our information can be found at www.scpolygraph.com. And I personally thank the association members for the opportunity to serve you in this position.
