About the Conference

PAFCAF’s Annual Conference is the premier educational and networking event for South Carolina’s child welfare professionals each year. Held at the beautiful Embassy Suites at Kingston Plantation in Myrtle Beach, attendees have the opportunity to network with colleagues, learn about new innovations and technology that can be applied to work with children and families, and interact with sponsoring organizations and companies. This year we expect more than 225 attendees, including PAFCAF member agency executives, clinicians and other credentialed staff, as well as key external partner organizations, vendors and suppliers.

This year’s conference will be held from Wednesday, February 28 to Friday, March 2, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The conference will focus on trauma-informed care, human trafficking victims, psychotropic drugs, gangs, working with LGBTQ youth and much more! Stay tuned for the speaker line-up which will be announced later this fall!
