Call for Presentations: 2017 National Title IV-E Roundtable
The planning committee for the 2017 National Title IV-E Roundtable, Examining efficiency and increasing access across systems through collaboration, is pleased to announce that the call for presentations is now open! The conference will be held May 23-25, 2017 in Phoenix, Arizona.
Please share this opportunity with your colleagues and network of child and family-serving professionals. Submissions are due January 13, 2017.
Do you work in child welfare? Whether you are responsible for training and professional development of staff, or an administrator of the Title IV-E/Title-B funding mechanisms, this event is the place to learn from your peers within your federal region about how to increase efficiency and access while reducing state and local costs. We seek proposals that stimulate dialogue, provoke critical thinking, and lead to an improved child welfare infrastructure for professionals who serve vulnerable and oppressed families.
Do you work in juvenile probation? Juvenile Probation Departments manage youth separately or in conjunction with child welfare systems and are in position to initiate or expand Title IV-E programs accordingly. This opportunity will be extensively increased based on currently proposed federal legislation. Proposals are requested that promote dialogue, discussion, and improved collaboration between juvenile probation and child welfare in the development or expansion of Title IV-E programs. Proposals that focus on opportunities arising from the new legislation are highly encouraged.
Are you an educator? Educators bear the societal responsibility of preparing professionals to work with, and on behalf of, vulnerable children and families. These professionals include but are not limited to social workers, officers of the court, and K-12 educators. We seek proposals that will stimulate dialogue, provoke critical thinking, and lead to an improved educational infrastructure for professionals who serve vulnerable and oppressed families. Please consider submitting a proposal to the education track of the National Title IV-E Roundtable if you can help us during a time of shifting policy.
Conference registration will open in January 2017. More information on the conference purpose, design, and history can be found at https://sites.google.com/site/2017titleiveroundtable/
