If you plan to attend this Friday's Zoom training, and are interested in claiming your 2 ACTAR CEUs, PLEASE READ THIS!
Please make sure you have the latest version of the i-Attend software. In the past week the developer has added the ability to enter a alpha-numeric code as a backup. This option will be used if the QR-code fails, which has apparently suddenly become an issue. In order to minimize problems on Friday during the show, and maximize our presenter's time, please check now that when you open it up on your phone, it has a button to "SCAN QR CODE" and also a button to "ENTER PIN" (like the second screenshot below). My version apparently updated itself already - since when I checked the App-store earlier this afternoon, there was nothing for me to update, and I have this newer version already.

Members should watch their email in the next couple days for the July/August issue of The Accident Reconstruction Journal, issue #196. I sent Victor (the publisher) our mailing list this morning. Peace. -Wade, admin.

ADMIN UPDATE: This evening, I emailed the latest NAPARS News to our 1,300+ members. It is coming from our email server, so some ISPs and email systems filter it out as spam. If you are sure your membership is up to date, check there, eh? Peace. -W

The video and slide show from the 05/05/2023 two-hour presentation by Kent Boots on ignition cycle count in EDRs and how to use it has been uploaded to the Reference Library. He also sent a copy of the federal rule regarding EDRs, an Excel file for estimating dates from ignition cycles, and a page of different scan tools (which he talked about more extensively in his WREX presentation, but which was a bit of a topic of discussion during this show as well). Thanks, Kent!
Four members have become unreachable by our email system.

If you know one of them, let them know to hit me up with a better email address, eh? Peace. -W
I just sent out the first newsletter this year to all NAPARS members. If you didn't get it, first check your spam box, then log into the website to check your member status.

ACTAR approved our slightly delinquent application in record time, so members who attend the 04 April Zoom presentation on Human Factors will have the chance to sign up for 2 CEUs from ACTAR. Thanks, ACTAR! If you are accredited, and want the ceus, be sure you have the correct i-Attend app on your phone beforehand. There won't be time to load it up when we show the QR code during the show. More details on the process are here: https://actar.org/ceu/earning
Andy's presentation on EDR stuff last week was great, and with his kind permission, I have uploaded the recorded show to the Reference Library along with his slide deck and the Excel file to evaluate off-axis EDR DV corrections. It's all in the 2023 Zoom Presentations directory. Thanks, again, Andy!
