Please join the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) in Baltimore for our 86th Annual Conference, July 16-19, 2023, at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel. The conference will feature amazing presentations on current and cutting edge topics that will inspire you, broaden your knowledge, and provoke discussions about issues facing the juvenile and family court system.

For over 85 years, the NCJFCJ has led systems to change by embracing the values of CompassionLeadershipEducation, and Community  through our network of more than 30,000 juvenile and family court professionals who share in the mission of this organization.

There will be plenary sessions highlighted by topic-specific training tracks on family law, juvenile justice, child welfare, and family violence; as well as sessions highlighting innovative solutions and self-care are just the beginning of the educational offerings of the NCJFCJ’s 86th Annual Conference.
