First Day is Busy for Performa at ACA 2010 Winter Conference

January 25th, 2010

Sunday evening was the first exhibit day for the ACA’s 2010 Winter Conference in Tampa Bay, FL. Despite being opposite the AFC Championship football game between the Indianapolis Colts and New York Jets, attendance was strong.

David Robillard, President of Performa’s Federal Programs Group, met with a large number of private and public corrections professionals.

At the booth, Performa is demonstrating BIM (Building Information Modeling) and site optimization models for prisons. In addition, Performa is conducting a survey of corrections professionals about the top issues confronting them in 2010. Following last night’s exhibit, here are the top three issues:

1. Funding
2. Operating Costs
3. Staffing Costs

No surprise that finance is the key issues heading into 2010.

A strong number of write-in votes identified “over-crowding” as a key issue challenging corrections professionals in 2010. Watch for updates on this blog each day of the conference.
