Welcome to CAMA!
I consider it a privilege and honor to serve as your president. I take this position very seriously and will do my best to ensure that CAMA continues to grow and reach new avenues to serve our members and their agencies.
The CAMA Board and I are working on several changes to CAMA that will greatly aid CAMA in providing better services to you, our members. One of the most recent changes took place during our Professional Development and Training conference in Atlanta. We voted to change our name to Compliance and Accreditation Managers Association. This change was necessary due to the growth of CAMA and the expanded mission CAMA has taken to offer members the professional development and technical assistance training necessary to ensure our members receive the most current and up to date training available. CAMA now serves agencies involved in compliance management and accreditation through associations such as the American Correctional Association (ACA), the Commission on Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) and National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC), and the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA).
We (CAMA) are celebrating our 30th year of serving CAMA members. I hope you will join us next year as we celebrate 30 years of CAMA. We will be back in Nashville, TN where we held our 2nd conference. Make your plans to be there. The dates are May 20 – 23 of 2017 and we will be at the Embassy Suites. We will be sending out surveys to our members asking for suggestions and input in regards to the training topics we can offer. I can assure you that we will have the same great training along with some celebrating of our 30th anniversary.
If CAMA can assist you in any way, please feel free to contact me, your Regional Director, or any member of the CAMA Board of Directors.
