The 22nd National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect (NCCAN) offers an exceptional opportunity to connect and learn about nationwide efforts to shift the focus of the child welfare system to primary prevention—creating the conditions for strong and thriving families and communities where children are free from child abuse and neglect.

Sponsored by the Office on Child Abuse and Neglect, Children’s Bureau, Administration on Children, Youth and Families, the 22nd NCCAN will provide a forum for leadership and action centered dialogue around this year's conference theme, Thriving Children and Families: Prevention with Purpose.

Virtual 22nd NCCAN: Save the Date

Join us virtually on July 27–29, 2021, for an outstanding slate of sessions at the 22nd NCCAN. The Children’s Bureau is committed to offering a program that features a cadre of compelling and thought-provoking speakers to engage you in deeply meaningful conversations and learning opportunities to inform your work. The virtual conference will be presented over three shorter days to ensure that content is delivered in digestible segments. Later start times each day will allow for attendees across multiple time zones to participate. It is our hope that utilizing a dynamic virtual platform will allow for participation of a broader audience and increase the diversity of ideas and input.

As conference details are confirmed, updates will be provided via the NCCAN listserv and this website. To receive conference updates by email, please subscribe to the NCCAN listserv. We wish everyone health and safety and look forward to seeing you—virtually—in July 2021!
