Elder takes on new challenge with NCIA

The Nebraska Department of Correctional Services (NDCS) is pleased to announce that NDCS Deputy Director Jeremy Elder has been appointed be the next vice president of marketing for the National Correctional Industries Association (NCAI) board of directors beginning January 2021. As deputy director for NDCS, Elder oversees operations at Cornhusker State Industries (CSI), Federal Surplus Property and the NDCS engineering division. Currently, Elder serves on the NCIA board as the representative for the South Central region.

“Throughout my 16-year career in correctional industries, I have found NCIA to be an essential resource to connect members, and share best practices as a way to move this field forward. I’m honored to serve this national organization in a new capacity,” said Elder.

He hopes in his new role will continue to promote training programs and opportunities provided through correctional industries – both locally and nationally.

“Employment skills are critically important in sustaining successful reentry,” said Elder. “At CSI, nearly 500 men and women make a daily choice to invest themselves through CSI work opportunities, learning specialized skills and completing industry recognized certifications to help those individuals become employment-ready upon completion of their sentences.”

Congratulations! #ReEntry #EmploymentSkills
