MSA Jail Administrator's Conference

        

 

35th ANNUAL

2017 JAIL ADMINISTRATOR’S CONFERENCE

September 12 - 15, 2017

(Exhibitor Dates:  September 13 -14, 2017)

 

It’s that time of year again when you sit back and think “I need to go hang out with my peers to figure out why I am doing what I am doing.”     At some point in everyone’s career, you question your Leadership skill without realizing that there are others that are doing the same.   We all want to be the best at our jobs as we possibly can, and we all want to make our bosses' jobs that much easier.  So on that note, we need to get together again and “Make it Happen, Make it Matter.”   This conference is a time to gather with your peers and realize that the Leadership that we all have does make it happen and that it does matter.    

 

Sign up for the conference and join your peers as you listen to a wide variety of speakers that will boost that Leadership that we all know is within us.   “Make it Happen , Make it Matter”  features Morris Morrison with an opening that will put you in a “position to perform.”  We will also hear from Jeff Danksy and his experience with “Great Attempted Escapes.”  Our very own Rick Hodsdon will be on hand to share with us his wisdom of FMLA and FSLA along with updates on Session Law and Case Law.   These speakers, along with the DOC and other speakers, will keep you interested in breakouts.   We will end the conference with Erik Therwanger and his wisdom in “Leadership Connection. "

 

This is going to be a hard conference to pass up.    Join together with your colleagues to gather the knowledge and support of the ones that make the same decisions that you do every day.    Every person is a leader to someone.
