Greetings fellow examiners!

It is once again time to announce the plan for our upcoming training conference. I am pleased to relate to each of you that we again have secured both top notch professional polygraph training coupled with a luxurious and historic location. The 2019 conference will once again be held at the downtown Drury Inn River Walk in San Antonio from July 22 through the 26, 2019.

Our conference this year will offer TDLR Continuing Education credit provided by Texas DPS, a New Examiner’s School with Lt. Dennis Westerman (DPS Ret.), and two days of specialized training conducted by Mark Handler. TCOLE credit will be provided by the Bexar County Sheriff's Office. Specialized polygraph training on Q/A, False Confessions, Operator Resiliency, and Advanced Psychology will also be offered.

Our newly elected treasurer, Jesse Deleon has resigned due to work and time constraints so effective 28FEB2019 I appointed DPS Special Agent Dave Stewart to fill the position until the current term expires in 2020. As a result, it is essential that everyone register for the conference early and get their hotel reservations made as soon as possible (deadline and cut off is July 1, 2019).

Be sure to renew your membership should you be unable to make this year's conference ($25).

Please join us in San Antonio - I look forward to seeing everyone there!

Robert Young
