Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina is pleased to announce our 2019 Learning & Leadership Summit. The theme for this event is, “Connections Matter for Prevention.” The Summit will enhance the practice and leadership skills of participants by providing educational workshops designed to help professionals develop the essential skills necessary to support and strengthen families in their communities, activate support for effective prevention practice, and engage all members of society in promoting what works in effective child maltreatment prevention.
The Learning and Leadership Summit will feature two distinct Tracks:
*Both tracks will include selections for SEASONED PROFESSIONALS (10+ years)
Day 1 will focus on Administrators
Day 2 will focus on Practitioners

Summit attendees will include community-based prevention practitioners, child welfare staff, public health providers, treatment providers, mental health practitioners, court personnel, advocates, public and private funders, and representatives from the civic and faith communities.
While a variety of proposals will be accepted, we are particularly interested in workshops on the following topics, with a lens on Equity:
We will be accepting a limited number of proposals.

The Speaker Information section must be completed by the lead presenter AND each of the co-presenters, and a biographical statement MUST BE included for each person. We cannot accept hand-written, emailed or faxed statements. All proposals must be received by October 31, 2018.
