CPPCA - Probation Parole Corrections

Words from the President

CPPCA President 2017
Michele Kennedy, Los Angeles County Probation

Happy New Year everyone!  It is with great enthusiasm and pride to serve you as your 2017 - CPPCA President.  This year marks 100-years, the Centennial...and we have accomplished much...through educational trainings, participatory engagement at each conference and empowering efforts in the times of challenge and controversy of ever changing legislation. 

Together, we have influenced government policy on a range of complex issues, from criminal justice to child welfare and human trafficking, transportation, and many more.

I remain deeply committed to working with all to continue the tradition of Probation, Parole and Corrections to advance our profession and create educational opportunities through our conferences and outreach efforts to collaborate with our outside providers, community leaders, network with our colleagues, and community-based partners.  

As we celebrate this centennial anniversary, let us reflect on the lessons of the past, and use the knowledge gained to forge ahead into the future.  The California Probation, Parole and Correctional Association (CPPCA) will be celebrating its 86th Annual Training Conference & Vendor Show this September 12 - 15, 2017, on the historical grand Queen Mary ship in the City of Long Beach, CA, and I hope to see you all there.

To the next 100 years! 

With hope...

Michele Kennedy
CPPCA 2017 President
Los Angeles County Probation
