Executive Assistant: Nanette Davis


Registration for the 72nd Annual General Meeting of the American Society of Questioned Document Examiners and joint meeting with the Australasian Society of Forensic Document Examiners, Inc. has begun. Use the form linked to this page to register with a credit card for the 2014 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 2014 conference papers on a USB Flash Drive.  Registration fees are below. 

This year, you can also use the form to register for a separate Foster + Freeman VSC Techniques Workshop that will be taught from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm on Friday, August 15. A separate registration fee of $100 applies. The class is limited to 30 attendees, so you should register early to ensure you receive a seat.

In addition, use the registration form to register for a special activity that has been planned for spouses and family accompanying ASQDE/ASFDE members and guests. For only $10 per person (regularly $27.00), attendees enjoy a tour of Pearl Harbor, the USS Arizona Memorial, Punchbowl, Iolani Palace, Kawaiahao Church, and learn about the area geology, history, and native species.  The tour will take place from 6:00 am to noon on Tuesday, August 12. THE PEARL HARBOR TOUR IS SOLD OUT.

The ASQDE uses PayPal for all credit card transactions. You do 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/ASFDE joint meeting is limited to members and invited guests. Regular, Life, and Corresponding Members of the ASQDE may request a guest invitation from the Secretary. ASFDE members may also invite guests.

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 yet 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.

If you are registering on behalf of someone else (such as an agency representative registering their employee(s) for the meeting), please note that this form does not provide for a space to enter the name of the registrant. You will need to enter the attendee's name as it is to appear on the nametag once you go to the PayPal screen. If for some reason you do not see this field, please send a confirming email to Nanette Davis, ASQDE Executive Assistant and advise her of the name of the person attending so she can match it to the registration.


If you are not an ASQDE/ASFDE 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.
