CLC Annual Conference New Orleans

May 22-25, 2014


New Orleans is a timeless city with a unique way of life, where French, Spanish, Caribbean and African influences collide in a brilliant explosion of flavors, sights and sounds. In May, CLC will welcome more than 1,000 child life professionals, educators and students from around the world to join this lively cultural gumbo during the CLC 32nd Annual Conference on Professional Issues, where we’ll share Big Ideas in the Big Easy. The conference will take place at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside from Thursday to Sunday, May 22-25, 2014.

At this unique event, you’ll have the opportunity to craft a personalized educational experience with more than 40 professional development workshops, plenary sessions, poster presentations, and full- and half-day intensives addressing a wide spectrum of issues and best practices tailored to all levels.

Dr. Garry Landreth, an internationally recognized authority in the world of child-centered play therapy and the founder of the Center for Play Therapy at the University of North Texas, will return to the conference to deliver the opening keynote address.

The closing general session will feature Robin D. Richards, a successful entrepreneur, co-founder and CEO of CareerArc Group, and president of the Chase Foundation, an organization dedicated to financially supporting programs that provide for the social, emotional and developmental needs of hospitalized children.

Don't forget to register for one of TEN full or half-day conference intensives available to attendees this year (separate fee applies). To learn more, check out the Conference Intensive Schedule
