The Juvenile Court Judges’ Commission (JCJC) is very excited to announce that the 2022 James E. Anderson Pennsylvania Conference on Juvenile Justice will return to the Hilton Harrisburg on Wednesday, November 2 through Friday, November 4, 2022. With the Conference returning to an in-person event, Resource Day will be held on Friday, November 4 between 8:00 am – 11:00 am. We invite you to join us as an exhibitor at Resource Day, where your organization can inform and educate a wide variety of conference attendees, including but not limited to juvenile court judges, juvenile court hearing officers, juvenile probation staff, attorneys, providers, and other system stakeholders.

Your long-standing devoted service to our juvenile justice system is valued, recognized, and appreciated. The past few years have provided previously unimaginable challenges, yet the provider community adapted and continued to provide high-quality services to youth and families across the Commonwealth. Again, the JCJC appreciates your perseverance and dedication to our system.

As a small sign of our appreciation, exhibitor fees for this year’s Resource Day are waived. The announcement provides details regarding this year’s conference. We truly believe attendance will be outstanding as we return to an in-person event for the first time since 2019, providing a great opportunity for providers to interact with a large number of conference attendees.

If you are interested in becoming an exhibitor during this year’s event, please contact Michael Yoder, Juvenile Court Judges’ Commission, electronically or at 717-705-9006.
