The United States Deputy Wardens Association is requesting your support for the 74th annual United States Deputy Wardens Association conference.  The conference will be hosted in Hot Springs, Arkansas at theArlington Resort & Spa from July 25th- 30th, 2021.   

The Unites States Deputy Wardens Association (USDWA) is the only professional organization focused on the Deputy, Associate, and Assistant Wardens of the nation’s correctional facilities.  Participants come from across the country to attend professional training and interact with industry vendors.  These are corrections professionals with a high level of decision-making authority regarding facility operations, programs, and purchasing.  A majority of states and many counties send managers to attend this conference.

The USDWA annual conference includes professional training on topics such as leadership, offender programming, technology, and facility management.  In addition to providing professional training, the USDWA places a high priority on work/family balance and a full schedule of activities is offered for members’ spouses and children.  The five day conference requires funds for quality trainers, operations, and materials.  Therefore, we are requesting your support in making this a conference to remember.  Your contribution in any amount would be greatly appreciated.

Enclosed you will find a vendor schedule and a sponsorship form listing the events, activities, and opportunities for vendor support.  Please complete the form and return with payment to the address provided on the form.

For more information, please contact me.
