2018 PCSAO Annual Conference


Conference Registration Opening Soon!

PCSAO will hold its 2018 conference September 19-21 in Columbus. The theme of this year’s conference is “The Child Protection Puzzle: Putting All the Pieces Together.” We strongly believe that collaborating and connecting essential components in child welfare are important in training and empowering our child protection workers. The conference will focus on efforts to highlight collective knowledge and best practices in child protection that lead to improving outcomes for children, youth and families.

Award Nominations

Each year, PCSAO recognizes the achievements of PCSA supervisors, caseworkers, and support staff, as well as local journalists whose work has made extraordinary contributions toward promoting safe children, stable families and supportive communities. PCSAO also celebrates young people for “Rising Up and Moving On” along with foster, adoptive, kin and birth families for “Family of the Year.” PCSAs are invited to nominate outstanding staff, journalists, youth and families. The deadline to submit nominations is Friday, June 29. Download the award nomination forms.
