AFCC promotes a collaborative approach to serving the needs of children among those who work in and with family law systems, encouraging education, research and innovation and identifying best practices."

If your proposal is selected we do offer a reduced fee for the conference if you plan to attend the entire conference. In addition, we ask that presenters bring their own computers if needed.
