Calling for 2023 Speaker RFPs!

We are pleased to announce the opening of the Request for Proposals for the 2023 Connecting for Children’s Justice Conference! This year, the conference will be in-person only and held at the Sonesta, Nashville Airport location from November 13-15, 2023.

CCJ addresses the training needs of multidisciplinary team professionals. The conference builds upon the participants’ experiences and teaches skill sets that can be used to improve and refine the team investigative process. Improving the investigative process increases the chance that a child and family will be referred to appropriate services and justice served to the perpetrators. The conference provides a unique opportunity for a diverse group of professionals from across the country to come together and learn how to better serve as advocates for abused children.

If you or someone you know is interested in submitting an RFP, please note that they are due Friday, May 26, 2023.  We are anticipating subject matter experts who will present issues related to Multidisciplinary Teams, Case Management, Mental Health, Forensic Interviewing, Investigations, Law, Advocacy, Leadership and more.
