Enjoyed the live sessions and opportunity to interface with other professionals in the pretrial field.
I found that I got value out of everything that we were assigned to do... I also found it a good opportunity to reflect on how we do things and how we can change things for the better.

PI-Con2019-800.png

THIS IS AN UNCONVENTIONAL CONVENTION.

Calling all pretrial innovators! Join the movers and shakers of pretrial justice at this one-of-a-kind convention. PI-Con is unlike anything you’ve attended. Re-imagine our professional future and disrupt the status quo. Join people who are unstoppable, thoughtful, creative and fun, and be prepared to break a few eggs.

Expert faculty, established consultants, and emerging pretrial change makers lead 30+ interactive sessions in the field of pretrial justice—all in an informal setting where networking, socializing and brain-picking with speakers, instructors, and fellow attendees is encouraged.

PI-Con is one of the few opportunities where attendees who want to be leaders in the pretrial justice space can up their level of understanding, re-energize their commitment to pretrial justice reform, build capacity in their sphere of influence, and connect with a degree of expertise that is unparalleled. In fact, the PI-Con experience is so unique, it only occurs every two years. Don’t miss out in 2019 or you’ll have to wait until 2021!

July 11-12, 2019 in Denver, Colorado.

As promised, PI-Con(tinued) 2019 has been rescheduled for July 11-12, 2019 at the Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center in Denver. Stay tuned for some upgrades to the agenda so you’ll be on the cutting edge of pretrial justice.
