| Beginning with the Southern States Correctional Association (SSCA) Conference July 16th-19th in Norfolk, VA, GreenPrisons will be making the rounds at some of the most important gatherings of correctional professionals this summer and fall.
We will be in the exhibit hall at SSCA, and present a workshop on the advantages of sustainability during the training portion of the event. You are encouraged to drop by and see us in the hall or in the sustainability workshop. To register or get more information about the conference check out http://www.virginiassca.org/2017-conference.html. While touring the exhibits don’t miss our sponsors Correct Pac and IVS Dehydrators who are also lending their support to this year’s conference.
The American Correctional Association (ACA) returns with its Green Aisle at the 147th Congress of Corrections in St Louis, August 18th-22nd, and GreenPrisons will be there. This is the conference you don’t want to miss. GreenPrisons will highlight at least 18 exhibitors on the Green Aisle who focus exclusively on sustainable products, technology, and services. Plan on checking them out. In addition to Correct Pac and IVS, you will also be able to meet representatives from KBI and Easywater and learn about what they do and how they can help your facility run more efficiently and economically.
In addition to the Exhibit Hall, there will be seven workshops on sustainable topics presented by practitioners who are some of the best in the field. Workshop topics include; Sustainability Options, The Deep Dive into Sustainability Projects. What Works Great, What Works Well and What Did Not; Correctional Facilities LEEDing the Way in Energy Efficiency; Beekeeping in Prisons: How to Start and Maintain a Successful Beekeeping Education Program.
