I am very happy to assume the duties of President of VCCJA, and would to like to give my sincere thanks to Pat Smith for her past leadership. VCCJA is a strong member driven organization, and has continued to grow over the psat 17 years. I am very proud of our membership involvement and the work of our committees on initiatives that impact our profession. The work of VCCJA and our partnership with DCJS is relevant and known nationally; together we have advanced the field of community corrections and pretrial services. This year (2012) will be an exciting one for VCCJA. We have several important initiatives underway, and we will continue our work of advocacy in the community corrections and pretrial services field. Committee work is how we accomplish our goals. Our committees cover a wide spectrum of VCCJA business; including conference, public relations, and legislative, just to name a few. Your input as a member is vital. I hope to be hearing of the many ways our Association can involve and engage our membership. Please feel free to contact me at (703)792-6065 or by email at saustin@vccja.org if you have suggestions.
