2017 APAI Chairs Meeting & Annual Training Conference
Dates: April 24-April 26, 2017
Location:The Sheraton Wall Centre, Vancouver, BC, Canada
The Association of Paroling Authorities International (APAI) will host many of the world’s leading experts on parole and criminal justice issues at the beautiful Sheraton Wall Centre in Vancouver, Canada, to discuss a wide range of topics involving public safety from April 24-April 26, 2017. These experts include parole and Releasing Authority Chairs, Parole Board Members, Administrators, decision makers in community corrections, academicians, students, practitioners, and staff from criminal justice funding entities and organizations at both the federal and state levels. Past participants from our international community have included representatives from New Zealand, Hong Kong, South Africa, Australia, Ireland and the Caribbean. We are expecting a large number of international participants this year, based on our conference location.
APAI is the only organization dedicated exclusively to parole and releasing authorities. It serves as a national and international resource and discussion network for the exchange of information within all areas impacting parole. Its mission is to enhance public safety and the recognition of victim rights by being involved with the development of national and international research-based parole policy. A fundamental value of APAI is the belief of a person's ability to change and the conviction that gradual, supervised reintegration into our communities is an effective protection of public safety.
