SAVE THE DATE FOR THE FALL CONFERENCE:

October 24-25.  The conference is moving to an interesting and unique location, the Mission Inn in Riverside.

This 90TH SEMI-ANNUAL MEETING of the Association for Criminal Justice Research (California) will be SOMETHING SPECIAL!

The organizing committee wants to set up different experiences than our usual panel presentations.  These experiences will center on groups with similar research interests.

Such groups could be: law enforcement, prosecution/defense, the courts, probation/parole, reentry, service programs (e.g., drug treatment, mental health issues, violence/harm amelioration, etc.) and special focus groups (like juveniles, veterans, crime survivors, previously incarcerated, and so on). Academics, students, and analysts with research organizations would join the group focused on their research interest or specialty.

The experiences might include information sessions, discussion groups, brainstorming sessions, workshops, trainings, or others. There could be a mix of affinity group experiences and reconvening as a whole to hear reports from the groups.

THE BOARD MEMBERS ORGANIZING THIS NEW FORMAT WANT TO HEAR FROM ACJRca MEMBERS AND CONFERENCE ATTENDEES.  Members are encouraged to join the Committee to share their ideas (especially ones beyond the items cited above).  Please contact our Vice-Presidents and Program co-chairs: Nancy Rodriguez (Nancy.r@uci.edu) or Tara Agnese (Tara.agnese@sfgov.org).
