Call for Workshop Proposals
The Texas Alliance of Child and Family Services invites experienced presenters to submit workshop proposals for our annual Texas Child Care Administrators Conference. The conference features high-level training for over 800 adoption, foster care, and residential child care professionals in Texas.
This year’s theme, Building Communities of Care, celebrates the leadership of Texas’ private providers in their commitment to building relationships and community collaborations that help develop the networks needed to best serve the children and youth in their care.
Proposals should include high-quality training and information on topics relevant to these professionals working as child care administrators, case management staff, public agency personnel, and community advocates. Presentations that address a broad spectrum of clinical and administrative issues for experienced professionals are welcomed.
All workshop proposals will be submitted for pre-approval to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services Licensed Administrator Program for Child Care Licensing for Licensed Child Placing Agency Administrator (LCPAA) and Licensed Child Care Administrator (LCCA) continuing education training credits.
Workshop proposals will be selected based on their relevance to the conference theme and current issues in the residential child care system, engaging format, style, clarity, originality, ability to be replicated, relevance to target audience, appeal to staff at all levels of an organization, identification of best practices and techniques, and reflection of creative, innovative work that responds to client and staff needs (model programs).
Suggested topics include but are not limited to:
