The National Resource Center for Permanency and Family Connections (NRCPFC) is pleased to announce our 2010-2011 Teleconference/Webinar Series. Each teleconference is designed to provide a forum for participants to share their experiences in implementing improved child welfare practices and to learn about national trends and research findings. Some of the teleconferences will include a webinar option. NRCPFC teleconferences are open to anyone working, involved, or interested in the field of child welfare.

You must register for each individual teleconference that you want to participate in. When registration opens, it will be announced in Weekly Update, NRCPFC's weekly newsletter. If you are not currently subscribed to Weekly Update, you can sign up here. Please note that this is the only way that registration will be announced.

Once registration is announced, you can sign up online. Each teleconference will be open to 100 participants, and registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Registered participants will receive a confirmation email which will include the call in-details. Please note that registered participants will receive a unique call in pass code which cannot be used more than one time (or by more than one caller). There are a limited number of phone lines available for each call; therefore, if you would like to include others in the call, we encourage you to invite them to a central location, where they can participate with you using a speaker phone. Registered participants will also receive a reminder email the day before the call, which will include a link to downloadable materials for the teleconference (which can be shared with others). As in the past, all teleconferences will be recorded and archived on our website, so if you are not able to make the live call, you will still be able to listen to the call and access all of the materials.

We look forward to your participation.
