NASC 2017 Annual Conference In Search of Effective Sentencing and Criminal Justice Policies Hosted by the New Mexico Sentencing Commission August 27-29, 2017 The Lodge at Santa Fe Santa Fe, New Mexico
Effective sentencing and criminal justice policy is an aspirational concept that can take many forms. It may refer to sanctioning that is fair and just, ensuring public safety, or preventing continued and future offending. NASC members continually work towards effective policy, but while some members focus solely on the point of sentencing, others engage more broadly in each of the decision points that can determine the overall effectiveness of criminal justice practice. The NASC 2017 Annual Conference will feature presentations that focus on promising innovations, research, and policy development designed to deliver effective sentencing and criminal justice policies.
The conference begins on Sunday, August 27, 2017 with a panel discussion at 4:00 p.m. followed by a reception at 5:30 p.m. The conference ends at 1:00 pm. on Tuesday, August 29th. The reception and all sessions will be held at the conference hotel.
The NASC Executive Committee is working hard to build the conference agenda. Check back frequently for updates.
