The National Association of Sentencing Commissions 2009 Annual Conference

August 2-4, 2009
Renaissance Harborplace Hotel
Baltimore, MD


The National Association of Sentencing Commissions (NASC) was created to facilitate the exchange and sharing of information, ideas, data, expertise, and experiences and to educate on issues related to sentencing policies, guidelines and commissions. Every year, the NASC conference brings together judges, legislators, correctional officials, policy makers, academics, researchers, and practitioners from around the country to examine our nation's experiences with sentencing laws and practices and to discuss emerging issues and innovations.

The 2009 conference will be held at the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland. This year's conference is an invitation for conference attendees to review what we have learned regarding sentencing policy and practice over the past 15 years and to discuss how this information can inform our decisions moving forward.
