CAYSA IS A DUAL CHAPTER OF THE AMERICAN CORRECTIONAL ASSOCIATION
As a CAYSA member your elected Executive Board represents YOU by annually attending the ACA Winter Conference and Congress of Correction. These annual conferences not only offer an outstanding opportunity to attend cutting edge training, but is also the time that national committees meet to conduct their business meetings. CASYA is currently represented on a national level with members appointed to the following ACAcommittees:
In addition to actively working on these committees, your CAYSA Executive Board members also attend the Board of Governors' at each conference, and are voting members of the Delegate Assembly. These governing bodies are charged with making decisions and policy necessary tothe daily operations of ACA. They also translate legislative policy and interpret public sentiment to craft the accreditation standardswe all are effected by in our day to day work. Please check out WWW.ACA.ORG for more information about thesegoverning entities of ACA. You can also contact any member of your Regional Executive Board for more information.
