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.


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.

The NCSEA Leadership Symposium is an annual conference for the child support community to 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. The Leadership Symposium provides a unique focus on nurturing current and future leaders in the child support program, including those who lead within their offices, whether they have the title or not.
