President's Notes                              

Dear ICA Membership:

     By the time you receive this newsletter I know that you will already be registered and have your bags packed to attend the Spring ICA conference in Cedar Rapids from April 16th to April 18th.  And why is the conference being held in April this year?   It is because we listened to our membership when they said the month of May often presents conflicts that make conference attendance more difficult.   The co-chairs, Laura Strait and Kelly Schultz, have put together an impressive training session track that will provide something for everyone.  ICA will also recognize the dynamic work of our membership with our annual awards program in addition to honoring those that passed away while serving the citizen of Iowa. The ICA awards and memorial ceremony is not to be missed. 

      The leadership at ICA believes that it is effective because its members are actively involved.   This is definitely true of any volunteer lead organization.  We have had several members step up this past year and chair conferences, chair committees and lend a hand in a variety of ways.  We are as good as our membership and our membership is great.                                                 

     Thanks to all of you for what you do every day in your jobs as well as your commitment to membership and your involvement in the Iowa Corrections Association.

     As always, it is an honor to serve you and please contact myself or any other board members if you would like to take on a more active role in your association.                                                  

Sincerely,

 Bruce Vander Sanden

 Awards Committee

       ICA Spring Conference is a bit early this year but yet very exciting time in our professional lives.  If you are involved with ICA you know the feeling and if you are not, you are missing out!  ICA is full of powerful information, exciting training sessions and good time to meet some of the amazing people that work in field of corrections.  During ICA you will meet people that will inspire you, change you and become your friends.   This time we are excited to be in Cedar Rapids.  When ICA comes to my mind all I think about it’s the Awards Banquet, that magical night when we recognize our co-workers for all of their hard work.  This year will be no different.   We have a list of amazing award recipients who have done extraordinary work and will be recognized for such.                                                

     We would also like to remember those who are no longer with us during the memorial part of our ceremony. You may email those directly to either one of use: Emma.Dedic@iowa.gov or Becky.Schneider@iowa.gov

      This has been a very long winter and spring is in the air!!! Please join us at yet another amazing ICA Spring Conference.

Women's Issues Committee                                               

SAVE THE DATES:  September 11th & 12th 2014 for the next ICA Women’s Retreat @ the Christian Conference Center @ 5064 Lincoln Street in Newton, Iowa.                                                

                                               

This relaxing retreat offers group members a chance for reflection & often brings about new perspectives & “outside the box” thinking. We have an awesome group of women that return year after year such that participants have developed cohesiveness and often mentor each other outside of the retreat.

CEU Fees

Please be advised that the CEU fees for the spring and fall conferences are increasing from $5 to $15. This is because the Iowa Board of Certification’s fees have increased and our new costs are reflective of those changes. Also, if conference attendees have not received their CEU sheet from the fall conference in Burlington please contact Teneil Cangas or Elizabeth Clark.
