2020 Statewide Conference rescheduled due to COVID-19

Dear Members, Vendors and Speakers,

Today, the board held an emergency meeting and we were able to confirm the ability to postpone the 2020 Statewide Conference. The new conference dates will be Sept 9-11, 2020 at the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells. Unfortunately this means we will be unable to conduct the 2020 Coordinator’s Conference. The next Coordinator’s Conference will be Oct 6-7, 2021 at the Tundra Resort in Green Bay.
We are in the process of reaching out to speakers to determine availability for the Sept dates. Initial responses are encouraging and I’m sure the agenda will be just as strong as it was previously.
Once again, if you have previously registered for the April conference, this will carry over to September. If not, we will be opening CVENT for registration in the future. Please cancel any room reservations you made for the April conference. We will provide more information on reserving lodging under the block for the September conference in the future.
Finally, many board terms were set to expire at the April Conference. In light of the public health emergency and the postponement of the conference, the board voted to extend their terms until the September Conference. A membership vote will be held at that time for new directors. If you have already expressed an interest in running for a board position, you will be included in the September vote. If not, please do so on our website WATCP.org.

Thank you for your patience and stay healthy. We hope to see you in September.

JC Moore

Board President, WATCP

 Wisconsin Association of
Treatment Court Professionals 

 (WATCP) is a professional organization representing the interests of treatment courts in the State of Wisconsin. WATCP’s multidisciplinary membership includes judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, court administrators, treatment providers, probation and community corrections officers, social service caseworkers, and other stakeholders in the field of treatment courts. 


The core mission of WATCP is to empower and inspire Courts and Communities to deliver transformative Justice. Our goal is to reduce substance abuse, crime and recidivism by promoting and advocating the establishment and funding of treatment courts and providing for collection and dissemination of information, technical assistance, and mutual support to association members. 


It is the design of the WATCP to associate with and/or work closely with other Wisconsin criminal justice or treatment organizations focusing on improving local justice system management and community corrections alternatives.
