Abstract Submission Form

Philadelphia 2016

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 for some fun ideas on how to make your session the session to attend. We know you’re up to the challenge.


As lead facilitator, you will fill out the below submission form on behalf of your team. The detailed information you provide will give us a clear idea of your topic, intended audience, learning objectives, and how your presentation will be delivered. This information will assist in our abstract selection and providing the highest quality sessions at our conference. You will be contacted when the selection period concludes. If your abstract is selected, we will reach out to you as team lead for materials for our mobile app and an article for the conference manual. As always, all presenters will receive complimentary registration to the conference. 


Thank you again for your interest. We are looking forward to an engaging and dynamic conference! The deadline for abstract submissions is February 1st. Please contact us with any questions at
