ABOUT

Policy Forum
2022

National Child Support Enforcement Association

NCSEA’s Policy Forum is the annual event dedicated to policies and issues influencing the child support program at the national, state, and local levels. 
 

As we began planning this year’s event, we thought a lot about all that has been accomplished this year on behalf of children and families, programs, as well progress that has been made advancing and promoting best practices in the IV-D program.

What was particularly notable was how NCSEA’s collaborative efforts – inclusive of various perspectives and priorities - clearly supported NCSEA’s Vision. And, that the inclusion of so many voices made the Association’s positions that much stronger.

 

        NCSEA ENVISIONS a world where every child receives reliable financial and emotional                    support.         
        NCSEA Believes parents are vital to the financial and emotional support of our children.

 

To that end, the 2022 Policy Forum will celebrate the efforts of the last year. Through listening and learning from one another, we will continue to move the program forward…
 

“Focusing on our Vision – Recognizing our perspectives”.

Experience DC
There's a reason locals say they live in "DC" and not "Washington." That's because "the latest news from Washington" starts and ends with the federal government, not the city locals and visitors have come to love. DC is where you can access the world's best museums – many that are free to visit. DC is where you go to explore neighborhoods with homegrown businesses and diverse communities. DC is where you and your friends can make lasting memories from events, shows and moments you'll find no place else. Plan your next DC experience.
