Federal Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice logoThe Federal Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice (FACJJ) Annual Report Subcommittee convened its 2009 Summer Meeting July 29–30 in St. Louis, MO. The subcommittee compiled results from the recent annual request for information, which will be featured in the 2010 FACJJ Annual Report. The annual request for information is an informal survey that allows each State and territory to express ideas, concerns, opinions, and recommendations on juvenile justice issues.

FACJJ's 2009 Fall Meeting will be held October 29–31 in Austin, TX. Registration is available through FACJJ's meeting registration Web page. FACJJ meetings are open to the public; anyone may register to attend and observe. Additional information is available on FACJJ's Web site.

The Federal Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice is a consultative body established by the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 2002 and supported by OJJDP. Composed of representatives nominated by the Governors of the States and territories and the Mayor of the District of Columbia, the committee advises the President and Congress on matters related to juvenile justice, evaluates the progress and accomplishments of juvenile justice activities and projects, and advises the OJJDP Administrator on the work of OJJDP.
