The PCA Annual conference is a two day event open to all PCA members and external stakeholders. There is a mixture of plenary sessions and workshops that address the key issues faced by probation and offers an opportunity to hear about the work of the PCA and other trusts. The conference also presents an important opportunity for probation staff and stakeholders to meet and share experiences and best practice.

It is aimed at CEOs Board Chairs and members, and senior leaders.
