We are anticipating more than 2,000 attendees as well as 85 exhibitors showcasing their latest products," reports Drilon Gojani, membership coordinator at the organization. He adds that Piper Kerman, author of Orange is the New Black, will be their opening session keynote speaker on Sunday, August 27, followed by a Plenary Session panel session on Monday, August 28, that will explore the findings of the independent commission regarding Rikers Island. John Calhoun, founder of Justice Resource Institute, will deliver the closing remarks on Wednesday, August 30.

"In total, there are nearly 100 workshops that participants can choose from over the course of the event," he points out.

"We are also excited to announce a new activity that has been designed to get attendees moving beyond the meeting room. The Community Corrections Chase (C3) is a competitive challenge based on the popular CBS show The Amazing Race. Beginning and ending at the Marriott Marquis on Tuesday afternoon, participants will visit different sites around New York City with prizes going to the first, second, and third place teams," Gojani concludes.
