19th National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect @ Hyatt Regency
Apr 30 @ 8:15 am – May 2 @ 2:00 pm

The Children’s Bureau’s Office on Child Abuse and Neglect (OCAN) is pleased to announce the 19th National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect, which will be held April 30 – May 2 in New Orleans.  The conference theme is Making Meaningful Connections.  We will also celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) at the Conference.

The National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect (NCCAN) has been held biennially since 1976. Sponsored by the Children’s Bureau’s Office on Child Abuse and Neglect, it is the only Federally-sponsored national conference devoted to the issues of child maltreatment and serves as the nation’s leading training and technical assistance event for practitioners, policy makers, advocates, and researchers. More than 3,000 in-person and virtual participants join together for a two-and-a-half day series of knowledge and skill-building sessions, building powerful collaborative networks and contributing to “lessons learned” that profoundly shape public policy, research, and practice in child maltreatment and child welfare.

Additional information on the 19th NCCAN will be posted as updates become available; please continue to check the Website regularly.  Feel free to contact us at NCCAN@pal-tech.com if you have any questions.
