Thank you for your vote of confidence and allowing me to be your association president for the next year. I am honored to be a part of such a professional group of men and women. I still consider myself new to the profession, so I will be looking to the association body for guidance and recommendations as to the future of our group.
I first want to thank Rusty Manley for his leadership the past two years. He has left a big set of shoes to fill. Before leaving office he was the spearhead of several projects, which I plan on implementing to increase the professionalism and efficiency of our association.
Thanks to the dedicated efforts of the Vice President Brian Godfrey, the new SCAPE website (www.scpolygraph.com) is up and running. In the near future there will be additional functions to the site; to include updated SCAPE sponsored training, job postings, membership rosters, and a section to promote private examiners. And thanks to the generosity of the Berkley County Sheriff’s Office and the coordination of our association Secretary, Lieutenant Michael Crumley, there will be a secure portion of our website that will contain a state wide database of pre-employment polygraph examinations. This updated website will be an asset to the association and an addition means of information distribution.
Also in the works is a plan to create a quality control network for examiners to use throughout the state. This will be an additional resource for SCAPE members to use if they would like additional input into their examinations.
I am already looking into training opportunities for the 2014 training year. If you have any recommendations, suggestions, or have an idea that would better the association please feel free to call or email me.
