April 2011Vol. 12, No. 3Reminder: Evaluation Summit Call for Abstracts

Last month we published the "Call for Abstracts" for the Children's Bureau's 2nd National Child Welfare Evaluation Summit, to be held August 29–31 in Washington, DC. The deadline to submit abstracts is April 15, 2011.

The Children's Bureau invites experts in the child welfare and evaluation communities to present at the Summit. The Bureau is seeking a balance of presentations that demonstrate direct involvement with public and/or Tribal child welfare agencies; partnerships with national advocacy organizations, think tanks, or technical assistance providers; collaboration with community agencies; and independent research. Applicants are encouraged to submit proposals that will contribute to the evidence base of child welfare practice and policy and benefit the diverse array of children and families served by the child welfare system.

Abstracts will be accepted for panel presentations, workshops, round tables, and posters that support the Summit's themes of Building Evidence, Strengthening Practice, and Informing Policy.
