SAVE THE DATE – 2019 OJACC Annual Conference
The Ohio Justice Alliance for Community Corrections (OJACC) is pleased to present its 33rd annual conference, “Intentional Leadership at All Levels: Reexamining our Role in the Stability of EBP,” at the Crowne Plaza Hotel North in Columbus, Ohio, October 10 and 11, 2019.
The general session Thursday morning will feature national speaker Dr. Brandon Mathews, from the Alliance for Criminal Justice Innovation. Dr. Mathews is an Organizational Scientist who focuses on carceral systems and organizations. His presentation makes the case that the correctional system is not broken, rather, it is designed to achieve the results that it does.
Dr. Mathews will also present two workshops:
• “Calling it Resistance is Futile! Reframing the concept of resistance to change through Primary Human Goods"
• “Culture Eats Your EBPs for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner"
In the closing general session, Antonio Smith and Roy Hall, founders of the DRIVEN Foundation and former OSU football standouts, will present CLEAN, a DRIVEN Foundation support initiative to help men and women in the criminal justice system better themselves by encouraging justice involved individuals to adopt pro-social behaviors that aid in the reduction of recidivism.
They will also present a workshop on “ELITE – Navigating Organizational Leadership to the Highest Level.” Highlighting commonalities between life and sports, they will share how the same mindset and techniques used to win on the field can be applied to create a winning environment within your organization.
Many other workshops will be offered for the improvement of community corrections including a CQI/QA track and a juvenile track.
OJACC is honored to continue its partnership with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction (ODRC) as ODRC once again presents The Clifford Skeen Awards in conjunction with the OJACC Achievement Awards luncheon recognizing excellence in community corrections.
Credits are being applied for in the area of Changing Offender Behavior (COB) CLE, RCH and Counselor/Social Work.
