On Sunday, October 29th through Wednesday November 1st 2017, the International Community Corrections Association conference will feature commissioned plenary presentations as well as workshop presentations.

  • Innovative and integrative – demonstrating the intersection of promising practices with evidence-based research.
  • Cross disciplinary (emerging outside of corrections with implications for practice with justice-involved males and females)
