About the event

2024 Conference Theme 

This year marks the second year of the thirty-year celebration of NASC. The 2024 conference theme is:

NASC Thirty Year Anniversary Conference: Part II (2024) Sentencing Then and Now: The Role of Commissions in Sentencing Reform, 1993/1994 to 2023/2024

When  the first informal gathering of state Sentencing Commissions took place  at the University of Colorado in 1993, criminal justice systems across  the United States were in the midst of historically high crime rates and  growing correctional populations and costs. While some states had  created Sentencing Commissions a decade or more earlier, these  challenges coincided with the creation of several new state Sentencing  Commissions in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The exact role of  Commissions and the precise form of policy change varied by state, but  there was typically some form of more determinate sentencing policies  such as mandatory minimums, three-strikes laws, or “truth-in-sentencing”  policies designed to keep people incarcerated for more of their stated  sentence.​

  • What was the role of Commissions as part of the adoption, or promotion, or resistance to these policy changes?
  • What is their role today?
  • How are Commissions and processes today different than 30 years ago?

Please  join your colleagues in Raleigh in August 2024 to explore these  questions together as we reflect upon thirty years of NASC, how  sentencing has changed or stayed the same, and what we can learn from  different approaches to address similar challenges across jurisdictions.



The NASC Executive Committee is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 2023 NASC conference to be held in Stateline, Nevada (Lake Tahoe) and hosted by the Nevada Sentencing Commission through the Nevada Department of Sentencing Policy.

The early bird registration fee is $425 and applies to registrations submitted through July 5. The registration fee will increase to $475 as of July 6.

The Conference will run Monday, August 7, 3:00 p.m. to Wednesday, August 9, 1:30 p.m.

Agenda coming soon! Please check back on the NASC website later this month.

We look forward to seeing everyone in Lake Tahoe!
