PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

SATAI Members,

We have now had our first conference at the Henderson Police Department facility and it was a complete success.  The facility is ideal for our meetings.  I would like to thank Henderson P.D. for putting up with us. We have also successfully rearranged the schedule such that our Glendale conference and testing will happen in January.  It should be a beautiful time for spending a day crashing cars.  We are working on having a food vendor so come have a picnic and participate in some crash testing.

Going forward there will be two conferences a year.  The winter conference will be in Glendale, AZ and will have a crash test day associated with it.  The summer conference will be in Henderson, NV.  We are considering associating a training class with the summer conference.

SATAI is all about training.  In November the CDR Analyst Certification course by CSI will be presented in Glendale, AZ.  This is also new for SATAI since there will not be a conference associated with the training.  Seats are limited and the course is expected to fill up early.

As always, I invite you to participate.  If you have topics that interest you or speakers that you would like to see, please contact anyone on the board of directors or the officers.

-Charley Dickerson
