On behalf of the CLA Southern Region Chair, Executive Director Bryan Collier (TX), and this year's host, Director Chad Dotson (VA), registration is now open for the 2024 Southern Region Meeting hosted by the Virginia Department of Corrections. This meeting will take place June 3rd - 6th at the Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, VA. This is an exciting opportunity for you to network with colleagues, learn about the latest developments in the field, and potentially participate in a fun golf tournament.

Additionally, this year, we're having a breakout event specifically tailored for DOC general counsel. We encourage them to join in this exciting opportunity. 

Lastly, please make sure your state is in the running to win the coveted purple jacket by signing up for the fun and competitive golf tournament. Even if you're not a great player, you can still participate and potentially win since it's a scramble-style tournament. Your general counsel is welcome to play in the tournament as well! 

All attendees must be registered by May 1, 2024.

All attendees must book a room (including DOC directors, general counsel, staff, associates, and partners). Do not wait to book your room! The reservation link will be in your confirmation email.
