The Southern States Correctional Association is a “family” of professionals from 14 states representing virtually every type of corrections agency – youth and adult services, probation and parole, counselors, teachers, administrators, and volunteers. The membership also includes law enforcement officers and others interested in corrections.
SSCA’s greatest asset is the combined knowledge, experience, and dedication of approximately 1,200 members. Nowhere will you find another group of people more willing to share both their ideas and their friendship. SSCA offers you an opportunity for networking with the best corrections personnel in the country and training unsurpassed by any other correctional organization.
SSCA is no newcomer to the South, nor to corrections. Its two predecessors – Southern States Probation and Parole Conference and Southern States Prison Association – provided SSCA a tradition of service and concern five decades in the making. Building on this legacy, SSCA has become a dynamic force in the field of corrections. Visit the State Reps page to connect with the chapter in your home state.
