American Society of Questioned Document Examiners



Executive Assistant: Nanette Davis



Registration for the 74th Annual General Meeting of the American Society of Questioned Document Examiners has begun. Use the form linked to the bottom of this page to register with a credit card for the 2016 meeting, make your banquet selections, and order extra banquet tickets. The same form is used by both members and invited guests. Registration for the meeting includes admission to all social receptions, scientific sessions, one banquet ticket, and a compilation of the 2016 conference papers on a USB Flash Drive. 


This year there is also an optional Foster+Freeman workshop, Examination and Identification of Fraudulent and Compromised Security and Identity Documents, on the afternoon of August 25 from 1:00 to 5:00.  The workshop is limited to a maximum of 30 attendees. There is an additional $50 fee and ASQDE members have priority through June 1.

The ASQDE uses PayPal for all credit card transactions. You do not need a PayPal account to use this form. If you are having problems with the PayPal transaction, click here for possible reasons. If you don't want to use PayPal, and want to pay by check or need to use a purchase order, you can complete our PDF Registration Form, which can be mailed to the address on the registration form.  Credit cards can only be used when registering online through PayPal.

Attendance at the ASQDE meeting is limited to members and invited guests. Regular, Life, and Corresponding Members of the ASQDE may request a guest invitation from the Secretary.

Trainees and students may register at a reduced rate.  Trainees are individuals who have not yet completed their basic training as a forensic document examiner.  Students are full-time college students who have NOT entered the field of forensic document examination.  If there is a question as to whether an individual qualifies for this reduced rate, the decision of the ASQDE Executive Committee is final.

Registration Procedures:


After completing the registration form, the PayPal website will open in a new window. Check to make sure that your registration information is correct. 

If you are registering on behalf of someone else (such as an agency representative registering their employee), please fill out the form as if you were the attendee. When you go to the payment screen in PayPal, there you will enter the appropriate billing information for you or your agency. You need the registrant's banquet choice to complete the registration. If your meeting registration has either been waived by us or paid by your agency, and you need to only order extra banquet tickets or to register and pay for the optional Foster & Freeman workshop, please complete the PDF of the registration form and email it to Nanette Davis at All your registration details will be processed and an invoice will be emailed to you through Paypal for the extra charges only, if applicable. Please click here to download the PDF of the registration form.

If you are not an ASQDE member, do not register for the meeting until you have received a written invitation from the ASQDE Secretary.  Registrations made without a written invitation from the Secretary will result in a cancellation of the registration and a $25.00 administrative fee will be deducted from the amount refunded to the credit card.
