APAI 2010 Conference

Savannah, Georgia, USA
International Section of the Association of Paroling Authorities International (APAI).

The 26th Annual Training Conference is to be held on May 16-19, 2010 in Savannah, Georgia, USA.

APAI is the only international organization bringing together parole decision-makers from various countries to dialogue and learn from parole jurisdictions best practices.

APAI brings together decision-makers and practitioners who believe that a gradual release into the community is an important part of good corrections principles and practices. As organizations, we have different parole legislations and policies, but we share a common belief that offenders can change and reintegrate safely into the community with good quality support from that same community.

The 2010 APAI Conference theme for this year is “Powerful Partnerships: Successful Reentry in Fiscally Stringent Times”.

The Program is on the website. APAI now accepts online registrations and credit card payments. For more information, come visit us at :
