The 19th National
Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect is the nation’s premier training and
technical assistance event for the child maltreatment field. Check back
frequently for updates on the exciting educational and networking opportunities
that are part of this biannual event. The
event will be on April 30th to May 2nd. It is in Jazz
Fest time, so there will be some issues finding hotels if you are coming from
outside New Orleans or commuting distance. It is being held at the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans on the
corner of Loyola and Poydras.
There is no registration fee to attend the
The Louisiana Host Team is a collaborative group of volunteers
from many sectors who are working to develop the volunteer teams needed for a
major conference. We are seeking more volunteers to help us - primarily with
the moderating roles. Do you want to hear national speakers on key issues
impacting children and families? If you do, we need you! You can sign up at www.latwc.com.
There are over 1400 registrations for the conference already – we need our
Louisiana folks to help us with manpower.
