Our Members

By building a membership of top experts, innovators and influencers, the Council creates a center of gravity for the field, elevates the field in stature and clout, and helps build relationships among those with the ability to shape the direction of policy and practice and the quality of the national conversation.

Membership serves as acknowledgement of the accomplishments of established leaders and as an honor to which the next generation of criminal justice trailblazers can aspire. It helps develop a strong cohort of people ready and able to understand, manage and lead the field through the complex challenges of the future, and supports the advancement of professionals and emerging leaders who are under-represented in the field, such as formerly incarcerated people, women, and career-changers.
