The ACA’s 2017 Winter Conference January 20-24 in San Antonio, Texas, was a huge success. Thanks to all those who attended and participated in the conference – we appreciate you joining us.  Thanks also to the local hosts who lent their support in order to make the conference a success.

Effective January 25, 2017, we welcomed our new leadership. At the 2017 Winter Conference these new leaders were sworn in at the Monday morning General Session.  We look forward to working with President Lannette Linthicum and the other leaders over the next couple of years.

Now on to St. Louis, Missouri, August 18-22, 2017, for the 147th Congress of Correction.  The Marriott St. Louis Grand will be our host hotel and we are using several additional hotels as overflow. Housing and registration is scheduled to open April 1 – stay tuned for additional information on this Congress. The most up-to-date information on the Congress will be posted on this website.
