2016 Court Improvement Summit
The Summit is a biennial training hosted by the Court Improvement Program for child welfare professionals in Utah. Our purpose is to increase child welfare expertise in the legal community and facilitate cross-training opportunities among agencies, courts and other key stakeholders.
Our theme this year is Join Us at the Table. The idea is that much of the improvements of the child welfare system in Utah happen at local Table/Agency meetings. We want to encourage practitioners to follow-that collaborative model and have that focus coming into the Summit.
