General Conference Information
IACTP is a criminal justice association that includes members of the training professions from national, state and local corrections agencies, community corrections, juvenile justice, higher education, academies and commissions, and private corrections.  We expect attendance to be from 75-150 participants, with approximately 15-30 participants per workshop.  The smaller size of this conference affords exhibitors more personal contact with the conference attendees, all focused on criminal justice training.

The Annual Trainers' Conference is a unique forum that brings together correctional leaders, training managers, trainers, field instructors, consultants and others interested in both effective corrections practice and exemplary training strategies.  It provides attendees with the opportunity to network and share innovative approaches being used within correctional agencies throughout the country.  We hope you will have a participatory role in shaping the agenda and future direction of our corrections system.
