We are now seeking sponsors for our 2021 conference!

The PCSAO annual conference is an opportunity to reach more than 500 children services professionals across the state. This year’s conference theme is “Facing the Future Together: Our World, Our Commitment.” The audience includes child protection caseworkers, supervisors, administrators, attorneys, directors, students and advocates. As a sponsor, you will benefit from face-to-face networking, organization logo included in conference material, on-site sponsorship recognition and publicity on PCSAO’s website. Exhibitor tables may be limited in number depending on health measures in effect at the time of the conference. Become a sponsor here.

Nominate professionals, youth and families for our annual awards

Thousands of children and youth served by Ohio’s child protection system have done wonderful things with their lives. Many have broken generational abuse cycles to become supportive, nurturing parents. Others have gone on to jobs or college, and some have even become foster parents. Many have contributed to their communities in meaningful ways. Do you know young people who fit that description? Nominate them for our Rising Up and Moving On Award.

PCSAO wants to recognize families who stand out within the children services system, including
birth families who have stayed together or been reunified, as well as kinship, foster, or adoptive families who opened their homes. Do you know families whose accomplishments and hard work deserve recognition? Nominate them for Family of the Year.

Each year, PCSAO also recognizes the achievement of professionals who serve Ohio’s public children services agencies. Do you know a child protection caseworker, support staff, or supervisor whose accomplishments and hard work deserve recognition? Nominate a staff member here.

All nominations are due July 2.

Thanks to our World Champion Sponsor, United Healthcare, and to all of our sponsors.
