NCSEA presents two conferences each year designed to advance professional development and provide knowledge and expertise to child support professionals and the child support community.

Leadership Symposium

Beginning in Milwaukee, NCSEA will offer a Leadership Symposium in place of the Annual Conference and Expo.  Much as the Policy Forum focuses on public policy and regulation at a high level, the Leadership Symposium will be a vehicle by which the child support community can share and celebrate the application of best practices, partnerships, and innovative thinking within the day to day management and operations of the child support program.

Policy Forums

The Policy Forum Conference, traditionally held in late January to mid-February in Washington, D.C,  provides a unique opportunity for IV-D Directors, researchers, policy experts and child support professionals to discuss and learn about the most recent developments and initiatives on the federal, state and local levels.  Experts in the Legislative and Executive branches, as well as experts from within our own community, provide the latest information on issues that impact the child support program.
