IN MEMORIAM - William (Bill) Plantier

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our dear friend and long-time NJACA board member, William (Bill) Plantier, on September 21, 2021.  Bill began his career in corrections in 1973, and held a multitude of positions as he rose through the ranks of the NJDOC. He continued his work with the correctional population post-retirement. Bill brought so much knowledge and expertise to our organization.  He was a leader in the field, and a friend to many. 

The 59th Annual Correctional Education Association Region 1 Conference will be held on September 28th - October 1st at the Grand Hotel in Cape May, New Jersey.
