The 23rd National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect (NCCAN), sponsored by the Children’s Bureau, will be held virtually over the course of 2 weeks in April 2023. The 23rd NCCAN will offer a unique opportunity for thought leadership and action-oriented dialogue around the theme of this year’s conference, “Doing Things Differently: Moving from the Challenge to the Change.” At the 23rd NCCAN, participants will explore strategies for making this vision a reality. Registration is now open!
Our virtual conference venue will offer both live and recorded sessions, posters, and a variety of special features, making the 23rd NCCAN not only an event but a destination for learning, engaging, and accessing diverse resources. Join us to learn more about moving from the challenge to the change.
