AJA Opens Calls for 2020 Presentations

By CN Staff

AURORA, Colo.—AJA’s Annual Conference & Jail Expo is the only national event that focuses exclusively on local jails and detention facilities. AJA attendees range from Corrections Officers, Trainers, and Managers to Medical Professionals, Jail Administrators and Sheriffs.

AJA now invites you to submit thought-provoking, educational workshops that cover current topics, trends, and innovative programs and strategies that affect or can impact our nation’s jails. The association is looking for submissions that address issues affecting the operation of jail facilities, provide tangible ways to adapt to change, offer actionable takeaways, and allow for personal and professional development and growth.
