I would like to extend my sincere appreciation and gratitude to our Region 6 NYSMICJ Committee for their continued dedication, support and commitment to providing a top-quality symposium for all professionals in the Criminal Justice field. I encourage you to join us for an informative and inspiring symposium.
NYSMICJ is encouraging criminal justice professionals to become a member for $35.00. With an active membership with York State Minorities in Criminal Justice your membership will be effective until January 2020. This year only, there will be one price for all attendees. As a member, you will be included in all annual membership meetings, annual membership activities and a discounted registration fee to all CAYSA and NYSMICJ trainings and symposiums.
As a not-for-profit agency, our goal is to share with criminal justice professionals that NYSMICJ is about who you are as an individual that bring many different attributes with different strengths and abilities through public awareness, outreach and donations.
I appreciate your interest in our symposium and hope that you share the same passion as NYSMICJ to take the step to join us as a new member. I look forward in your decision to attend our 2018 NYSMICJ 3-day symposium. If I can be of any further assistance, please feel free to reach out to me.

As our workforce ages, knowledge transfer is more critical to the future success of the Department. We can no longer rely on informal Mentoring alone, as it is not always inclusive. We want to ensure every eligible staff person has an opportunity to be a Mentor or a Mentee. The Mentoring Sub-Committee has done an outstanding job to ready us for a world-class Mentoring program.
In the coming weeks and months, you will be hearing more about the Department’s Mentoring Program and the CDMAC.
Mentors and Mentee applications were made available to Facilities and Area Offices in the Wende Hub. The pairing of Mentors and Mentees will begin the week of October 8th. Our goal is to fully implement the Mentoring Program Statewide in the 1st Quarter of 2019. A Mentoring Program Directive has been drafted.
