NICWA’s 39th Annual Protecting Our Children Conference season is well underway with the early-bird deadline approaching on March 1, 2021. Participants will be able to attend from the comfort of their own home or office. All attendees will need internet access or a phone for call-in options. Webcams are encouraged for networking activities.


With over 1,400 attendees, and growing every year, this four-day conference has become the premier national event addressing tribal child welfare and well-being. Keynote speakers range from tribes sharing best practices and lessons learned to youth with lived experience in child welfare systems.


Participants represent a cross-section of experience and interests including child welfare, mental health, and juvenile justice service providers; legal professionals; students; advocates for children; and tribal, state, and federal leaders.


Exciting new elements to look forward to this year:

• Sweepstakes with two grand prizes

• Recorded sessions for post-conference viewing
