Hello MACPO members,

My sincerest greetings from the river city of beautiful Chaska, MN!  As I write, I am taking an inventory of, and marveling at, the number of exciting conversations happening these days in the Corrections world!  Although very inspiring, they can at times be overwhelming.  It’s tough to remember what all the acronyms stand for in this business.  EBP, CSAC, TCI, JJAC, T4C, ART, MRT, ICOTS, MNSIRR, MI, MITI, LS/CMI, YLS/CMI, SARA, DVI. TBI, CBT, MI/CD, MNATSA, CCP, MNCOSA, MINNCOR…….. and the list goes on……. Implement this, evaluate that, coach this, quality control that.  The only effective way to wrap our heads around all these concepts happening simultaneously is to hit them head on, through training, collaboration, and networking.  Our MACPO organization continues to be in the thick of it all, providing quality training, collaborating with other organizations, effectively communicating with our members, and being integrally involved in the legislative process by communicating our platform to the people who can effect change at the state level.  As we look forward to our 2018 Spring Conference at lovely Breezy Point Resort, we are reminded of just how busy we are, implementing programming for those on probation to our agencies that is proven to be effective in fostering behavior change.  To the extent possible, our Training and Education committee will be addressing these interventions at regional training opportunities as well as the Spring Conference.

As MACPO President, I would like to thank all of our committee members for working hard to bring quality service to our members.  We encourage you, our members, to spread the word about MACPO…..and of course, we hope for great attendance at our Spring Conference!  Thank you and may you all have a great, short, rest of the winter!  See you this Spring!

Eric Johnson
