Letter from AAPP Regional Director

Posted: 10/6/2015

To all CAPE members,
I hope you enjoyed your summer and first weekend of the fall! I have been an AAPP Region Director for the past two years, having served the members of Region III, prior to relocating to Region IV for work. I officially introduced myself to Region IV in our July journal article after being elected to the Region Director IV position. I am writing to say I will be periodically reaching out to you and want you to feel free to contact me if I may be of any assistance regarding the AAPP.

I am seeking polygraph news for our AAPP Journal. If you have an information showcasing our region (publications, promotions, transfers, new graduates, retirements, births, training and cases of course (successful or otherwise; nothing is routine), polygraph issues/problems, etc.), please send me a synopsis.

I appreciate what you have to offer and look forward to serving you.

Eileen Ryan
