Texas Child Care Administrators Conference

November 8-10, 2021

Did you attend the 2020 conference and miss seeing your colleagues in person? Or did you participate virtually and secretly love wearing your slippers while in a break-out session? Are you new to the conference and wondering what all the hype is about?

Whatever your situation, you do not want to miss the 2021 Texas Child Care Administrators Conference – the largest conference in Texas that connects over 1200 child welfare professionals with the latest information and training on effectively delivering quality care to the children, youth, and families they serve.

As we emerge from a very challenging 2020, we find renewed strength in our shared experiences. Through Powering Connectivity, community organizations have continued to be at the forefront of creativity and innovation in serving the children, youth, and families of Texas!

So please join us as we come together for high-level training, professional networking, and lots of fun! As always, 15 pre-approved hours of continuing education are offered for LCCA and LPCAA license types. This year’s event will be held in person at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel on November 8-10.  For select sessions, there will also be the option to stream in virtually.
