A facilitated panel comprised of leaders from state, county, and private nonprofit child welfare agencies and associations will kick-off an open discussion in a secure environment on how best to collaborate on messaging, advocacy, and better outcomes. The forum will begin during Workshop Session E and continue after the closing luncheon, from 2:30 - 5:00 p.m. The post-luncheon session is exclusively for CWLA members.
