The John B Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center, in Boston, Massachusetts is the site for ACA’s 149th Congress of Correction; August 1-6, 2019. Our keynote speaker for the 149th Congress General Session is former New Jersey Governor and United States Federal Prosecutor Chris Christie. The ACA's host hotels are the Boston Sheraton and Boston Marriott, with overflow rooms in the Westin and Hilton. The majority of rooms have already been booked, so if you still have to make reservations do so as soon as possible! You may have to make your own accommodations if you have not secured housing yet. Click here for up-to-date information on the Boston Conference, as well as registration and hotel booking.

ACA will once again host a wellness expo where conference attendees can receive free health screenings, have access to exercise equipment, healthy snacks and video presentations on wellness. Also stop by the interfaith prayer room, and be in the exhibit hall for a raffle for ACA’s grand prize and runners-up prizes!
