Each year, the NACC hosts a three-day training that convenes a national community of multidisciplinary advocates for children, youth, and families and usually covers a wide variety of topics. In most years, the conference also includes a one-day pre-conference training focused on the Red Book Training course, which covers the major competency areas based upon the NACC publication, Child Welfare Law and Practice (known as the “The Red Book”). The Red Book Training prepares attendees for the NACC Child Welfare Law Specialist certification exam.  

The NACC’s 45th National Child Welfare Law Conference is scheduled for August 22-24, 2022 in Baltimore, Maryland. A pre-conference session is also scheduled for August 21, 2022. More information is available on the NACC website.
