West Coast Child Welfare Trainers Conference – July 16-18
This year’s conference is located in beautiful Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Lewis and Clark explored this region on their Corps of Discovery adventure over 100 years ago and the same splendor they found is still here today. Surrounded by mountains, rivers and majestic lakes it is a delightful setting for our 24th annual conference.
The West Coast Child Welfare Trainers Conference is a remarkably unique conference that focuses on the art and science of training in the child welfare system. We will dive into the heart of teaching and learning, sharing best practices, discovering new resources and improving the quality of our practice.
