Message from the President:
To the Association Members:
Good day, I wanted to give you an update for the 2014 League Conference which will be held on November 18th at Bally’s Park Place in Atlantic City. I am very excited about the topics that will be presented. Registration and Breakfast will begin at 8:00 am. We will be holding elections for the Executive Board at this meeting. I have posted the bios of those who are running. Immediately following will be our business meeting, which we will receive 1 CMR credit.
The morning session topic will be given by Homeland Security Forensic Laboratory. John Mingione’s Section Chief from the Department of Homeland Security will be doing his presentation on defining what to look for in ID’s for legitimate purposes versus fraudulent ID’s. The Homeland Security Forensic Laboratory will present a two hour overview of travel and identity documents that can be used as supporting documents to obtain U.S. vital records. These documents include U.S. Passports, visas, certificates of naturalization and permanent resident and employment authorization cards. There will be a questions and answers section to follow after presentation. You will be receiving 2 CMR credits as well as 2 RMC credits.
Our afternoon session will be held at the Atlantic City Convention Center. Our first speaker will be Vincent Arrisi, Cathleen Bennett, Colette Lamothe-Galette & Yamileth Contreras, from the Bureau of Vital Statistics. They will be introducing the Vital Information Platform. The new electronic vital information system will include births, fetal deaths, marriages, civil unions, domestic partnerships and deaths. The first module will only have births and fetal deaths. The training at the meeting will be for the first module and the role of the local registrar in the registration process along with specific system training that will cover step by step instruction on reviewing, accepting and certifying those documents. This platform will go into effect sometime next year. You will be receiving 1.5 CMR credits as well as 1.5 RMC credits. This will take place in Room 304 in the Convention Center.
Our second afternoon speakers will be from the Corrections Unit from the Bureau of Vital Statistics. They will be presenting an overview of process and training along with a review of the forms to be used for each scenario. You will be receiving 1.5 CMR credits as well as 1.5 RMC credits. This will take place in room 312 in the Convention Center.
All the information about the conference is listed here on our website. We will be extending the cut-off for registration until October 15, 2014. I strongly urge you to attend these sessions, especially the one on Vital Information Platform.
As always, I look forward to seeing you at the conference. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at (201)943-1700, ext. 6007 or via email at email@example.com
