Abstracts are now CLOSED. NACC truly appreciates your interest in presenting at the 39th National Child Welfare, Juvenile and Family Law Conference, held August 12-14, 2016 at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel.
Our goal is that conference sessions will expand attendees’ understanding of child law and provide them with practical tools to help protect the rights of the children, youth, and families they serve. Our attendees include delinquency and dependency attorneys who represent children, parents, and agencies, family law attorneys, judges, social workers, and other advocates across multiple disciplines. Based on conference evaluations and membership surveys, topic areas of interest include: trial tips, children and medication, marijuana use, ICWA, early intervention, LGBTQ youth and families, and trauma.
NACC has decided to do something bold at this year’s conference: we’ve outlawed PowerPoint. We want to move away from the typical style sessions to a more innovative, pedagogically-informed learning environment. The conference is a laboratory to showcase our big ideas and learn from each other. Let’s get serious about that. We’re asking presenters to elevate their game by infusing their sessions with engaging, meaningful structures that drive education. And NACC is here to help. For starters, check out this list of PowerPoint alternatives .
