APA National Office Manager Robbie Bennett passes away

It is with great sadness I must report to the APA, the polygraph profession, and the world that Mrs. Robbie Bennett, the Office Manager, American Polygraph Association since 1984, has passed away. Her kindness, gentleness and decency will be sorely missed.
