Conference Registration Program

The foundation and framework for Excellence in Child Welfare is achieving the vision that all children will grow up safely, in loving families and supportive communities, with everything they need to flourish—and with connections to their culture, ethnicity, race, language and sexual identity.  CWLA encourages and supports innovative approaches and multi-system collaborations that have improved the well-being and success of children, youth, and families who are most vulnerable.  CWLA advocates for best policies and practices, and encourages building strategic alliances that result in improved outcomes.

The CWLA 2015 National Conference engaged stakeholders and partners whose efforts, contributions, and standards improve outcomes for children, youth, and families. Presentations showcased those policies, programs, practices, research, and collaborations that are aligned with the Core Principles of the CWLA National Blueprint for Excellence in Child Welfare.

The conference sessions featured promising practices, programs and strategies; effective engagement, partnership and collaboration; challenges and opportunities related to safety and prevention; innovations in leadership, workforce development and quality improvement; and evidence-based practice and research.  CWLA members can review session presentations on the “Members Only” site.
