The 2012 Missouri Reentry Conference will be held November 14-16 at Tan-Tar-A Resort at the Lake of the Ozarks. The Conference's theme will be "Faces of Reentry."

The annual Conference provides high-quality education and networking opportunities for corrections professionals and community-based partners who contribute to the prisoner reentry process. The multiple tracks format offers a self-directed, facilitated learning environment with education sessions, interactive forums, and exhibits. Education sessions are carefully designed to transcend all industry sectors, focusing on current and emerging issues, best practices, and the many challenges that the community, corrections staffs, and ex-offenders face. This year's keynote speakers are Robbie Montgomery and her son Tim Norman from Sweetie Pie's Restaurants in St. Louis, who will speak about Tim's  own incarceration and the importance of giving second chances to ex-offenders.

The Conference is sponsored by ARCHS, Missouri Department of Corrections, Missouri Department of Social Services, and Family and Community Trust (FACT). Each year more than 300 people attend the conference.
