We are limiting the number of participants for the meeting this year with a 50-person maximum on attendees. Unlike previous years, we will neither host a familiarization shoot nor provide a vendor area. We are working on the agenda and seek your input as a presenter but will cover topics surrounding the firearms/toolmarks discipline and all the advancements and accomplishments since 2019. Next step is to hold your spot and provide us with a little bit of information.
