Q: What is CLA?

A: CLA stands for the Correctional Leaders Association. Our members are top-level decision-makers for state correctional systems, appointed by governors or boards. We also include members from large counties like Los Angeles and city systems like Philadelphia and Washington DC.


Q: My company wants to attend. Will CLA use an exhibitor hall company for logistics?

A: Yes, once signed up, you'll receive contact info for our logistics partner. They'll handle all booth needs.


Q: What are the costs?

A: This information will be sent out soon. Make sure you submit an application to receive the information as soon as it becomes available. 


Q: I'm a corporate partner, but we don't specialize in security tech. Can we attend?

A: This event focuses solely on security-related tech, so only companies in that realm can attend.


Q: Besides the exhibitor hall, can we interact with Correctional Directors?

A: Yes, our members have requested this event to learn about today's best tech and will be eager to engage with industry experts.


Q: Can my company present our technology to the whole group?

A: We're currently developing the agenda, seeking input from our Directors and considering exhibitor numbers. More info on the agenda will follow.


Q: Will CLA Associates (former DOC directors) be able to attend if they are not associated with a Tech Company? 

A: Yes!
