IATSA members and friends,
Thank you for making the IATSA 2018 Conference a huge success. We received a lot of feedback from you, with many of you indicating how much you enjoyed this year’s conference. We can only say thank you to you the treatment providers, probation/parole officers, support staff, security staff, attorneys, polygraphers, and the SOMB for making our annual conference possible; without you and the support you extend, we would just be a half dozen individuals trying to figure it out.
Our key speaker from last year, Robin Wilson, was so impressed with the turnout we had compared to what the annual conference in Florida offers. He mentioned the annual Florida conference has about half as many attendees as we did. When comparing the population of each state, it’s truly amazing and a testament to the dedication of the professionals here in Idaho.
Save the date!!! We have already secured the date for the IATSA Conference 2019. Once again it will be located at the Courtyard by Marriott in Meridian, Idaho on August 7th - 9th.
As a matter of planning for this year’s conference we are asking for your help. It is only through financial fidelity that we can continue to attract nationally recognized speakers on the subjects you want to learn more about. We are already in the process of securing speakers for the 2019 conference. In order to accomplish this, we encourage you visit WWW.IDAHOATSA.COM and join our membership. If you enjoy being involved in the direction and development of IATSA, we invite you to become a paid Professional Member of IATSA with full voting rights and other benefits. The annual dues allow IATSA to expand it’s value as an organization.
The IATSA Conference Committee would also like to hear from you concerning any ideas for future speakers and/or topics you would like to hear about at the annual conference. Please submit ideas via email at Idaho.ATSA.Conference@gmail.com. We appreciated the all the feedback received concerning last year’s conference.
