Dear ASCLD Colleagues,

As of last week, the current ASCLD Board of Directors has been serving our membership for one year! We will transition to a new board at our Annual Business Meeting on Thursday, August 26th, 2021, in-person in Boston.

The MRC is working on pulling together information and resources on employee wellness from forensic science service providers. Please take a moment to take this brief survey: 

Some of our members participated in a study supported by the NIJ about traumatic stress and burnout. The study was officially published this month:

Levin AP, Putney H, Crimmins D, McGrath JG. Secondary traumatic stress, burnout, compassion satisfaction, and perceived organizational trauma readiness in forensic science professionals. J Forensic Sci. 2021;00:1–12.

Have a terrific week!

Be well,


Erin P. Forry
ASCLD President
