Conclusion of the 2018 Annual Seminar

The January 2018 Annual Seminar is now a part of the National Polygraph Association history. There were a total of 97 members who came to the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada for their continuing educational requirements and professional standards.

With our annual seminar came new names that filled the various positions of the National Polygraph Association Board. Before we discuss the new names, I would like to first thank all of the present and past board members/volunteers who have tirelessly worked to make this association a respected and professional organization for us all. Below are the changes that have occurred:

  • Chairman of the Board: Chip Morgan
  • President: Gary Davis
  • Vice President: John Odum
  • Secretary: Theodore "Ted" Parker, Sr.

For 2018 the Board Member positions are the following:
