  • The Young Forensic Toxicologist (YFT) Committee is excited to announce this year’s Professional Development Fair during SOFT 2016 in Dallas. The Professional Development Fair (PDF) will be held in the main exhibit hall on Tuesday, October 18, from 6:30pm-8pm during the Welcome Reception.

    The goal of this event is to provide an opportunity for attendees to meet with representatives of organizations that can provide them with information on academic programs, board certification, continuing education, and new career opportunities. It is an opportunity for organizations to promote their programs and for agencies to advertise job openings. Although the event is hosted by the YFT, the event targets toxicologists at all levels in their careers and is open to all meeting attendees.

    We are pleased to be able to provide this opportunity as a complimentary part of meeting registration. If your organization is interested in reserving a place in the PDF please contact us at SOFTYFT@gmail.com by September 15, 2016. Please note that there are a limited number of spaces available and they may go quickly. If you sign up you will be provided a bulletin board; table space (if available) will be limited this year. We believe that this is a great opportunity to showcase your organization and reach out to a target audience in a mutually beneficial way. Please note the individual representing your organization will already need to be attending the SOFT meeting.

    We look forward to seeing you in Dallas!
