Receive a quarterly corrections journal, The Southern Concourse. This publication will allow you to keep abreast of topics of concern for corrections. Corrections professionals share information about innovative programs and accomplishments as well as issues and concerns in their states. The Southern Concourse will also keep you in touch with the colleagues you will meet through SSCA. As a “family” we are concerned with each other just as we are concerned with corrections issues.
Have the opportunity to attend an annual training conference in one of the 14 states that comprise SSCA. These conferences are centered around a training program that is second to none. Not only do we learn about offender programs, needs, and programs; we acknowledge the problems and needs of correctional workers and provide training that will address our concerns as well as motivate and stimulate us to do our jobs well.
Provide networking opportunities with qualified, experienced professionals. Through your attendance at the annual training conference, or from contacting the individuals/programs highlighted in The Southern Concourse, you will have a wealth of knowledge at your disposal. We share our ideas and assist each other on a daily basis.
Eligible for academic scholarships and membership recognition awards. See the Awards page for more information.
