The programme for this year's AGM in Cardiff is shaping up nicely. Outgoing HM Chief Inspector of Probation Dame Glenys Stacey has agreed to be on the panel for the debate on the future direction of Probation. She will join Amy Rees, Executive Director HMPPS Wales and Strategy. We also hope to have Shadow Justice Secretary, Richard Burgon, and JSC Chair, Bob Neill.
There will also be a Family Court Professional Session looking at Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the link to domestic violence from both a family court (the start of the cycle being the ACE) and probation (the result of ACE being DV perpetrator/adult victim) angles. More on the panel later.
Online registration for this year's AGM in the St David's Hall, Cardiff, is now open. The registration fee this year is frozen at the 2018 rate of £50 (£30 Unemployed/Retired/Retired PAM members) AND this year the fee will include a sandwich lunch on both days as well as refreshments in the formal breaks and live entertainment. There is also a full programme of lunchtime and evening fringe meetings shaping up.
