VirtuaLEVA 2020 DME Training Symposium

The LEVA Board of Directors has examined the guidance of medical and scientific experts in making its decision whether to hold LEVA’s 31st Annual Digital Multimedia Evidence Training Symposium this October 26-30 in San Diego.

The Board has unanimously agreed that the risk is too great to conduct the symposium face-to-face as in the past three decades.  Therefore, the on-site event for 2020 has been cancelled. Plans are underway though for San Diego to host the 2022 symposium.

In the meantime…we’re seeking your preference on an issue and hope you’ll complete this one question survey.

For 2020, the Board is considering one of three virtual options and wanted to call upon LEVA members and others in the community for their opinion / preference.

Here is the survey link:

On behalf of the LEVA Board, thank you for understanding and your continued support. Be safe and healthy and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Mr. Jan Garvin, LEVA Executive Director,
