NCSEA Leadership Symposium
August 12-15, 2018
Westin Convention Center – Pittsburgh, PA

Please join us for another exciting year of the NCSEA Leadership Symposium, which will be held on August 12-15, 2018 in Pittsburgh, PA.  Symposium attendees will enjoy relevant, quality educational opportunities aimed at directors, managers, leaders, and future leaders in the child support community.

Sessions will be led by other frontrunners, both in and out of IV-D. Topics include child support leadership, innovation, technology, policy, best practices, and management skills. Numerous CLE offerings will continue to be included in the agenda. The Leadership Symposium is not a “nuts and bolts” of child support case processing –  but an exciting opportunity for leaders and future leaders from around the country, and around the world, to share initiatives at all levels.

The NCSEA Leadership Symposium offers the same high-quality programming you have come to expect from NCSEA, with 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.

So whether you are a current leader, or aspire to become one within your organization, the Leadership Symposium is for you.

View the Leadership Symposium Schedule at a Glance here to begin planning your professional development experience.  Schedule is subject to change.

Topics will include: Family Law, Collaboration Strategies, Fatherhood, Team Building, Leadership and Tribal Child Support, among others.  See session descriptions.

CLE Credit
CLE credits will be available for several education sessions.  Be sure to check the Leadership Symposium CLE webpage regularly for updates on state approval and workshop content.
