Iowa Corrections Association
ICA addresses the full range of our state's correctional issues. Since its inception in 1957,
ICA has done so with a competent, skilled, and enthusiastic membership. The Association prides itself as being one of the strongest state correctional organizations in the nation.

ICA spans a broad base of correctional programs: adult and juvenile, institutional and community, male and female.  Whatever your professional realm, there is a place and need in ICA for YOU.


ICA is effective because its members are actively involved.  Our mission is to enlighten, educate, serve, and support.  ICA is corrections in Iowa.

Message from the President                                      

As I continue through my career in corrections and my term as president of the Iowa Corrections Association, I’ve come to realize that the learning process should be a never-ending story. Once you’ve made the determination you have nothing more to learn, you cease to grow both personally and professionally.

The Iowa Corrections Association continually strives to provide quality information and opportunities to keep its membership on the leading edge with what works in the institutional/community correctional field. One manner in which we do this is with our bi-annual conferences. The finishing touches are being completed on the 2015 Fall Conference Oct 28 – 30 at the Grand River Center in Dubuque and is offering some great sessions such as author and nationally recognized expert in de-escalation, Andra Medea. The Spring 2016 Conference is currently slated for Davenport with the hotel site being finalized.The face of corrections is ever changing with new laws being passed and new programs being tried. ICA is proud to be your vehicle to these paths of change.

Please remember to support the Iowa Corrections Association by remaining strong members and encouraging others to join. Above all, remember that we are the ones who must support ourselves by supporting each other. The benefits are enormous and provides the skills for you to play a greater role in the goals of reducing recidivism and keeping your family, friends and neighbors safe.  Don’t hesitate to reach out to your Board members if you have questions, ideas or if we can assist you in any way.  

It is an honor to serve alongside all of the dedicated corrections professionals that make up the ICA membership.  I look forward to seeing you all in Dubuque in October.

Your President,
Bryan Reicks
