The world is adapting, and so are we. As professionals on the front-lines working hard to keep our communities safe in the face of the added uncertainty and danger that comes with a global pandemic, we can only imagine how your worlds are being impacted both personally and professionally right now. We are with you.

We have been monitoring the evolving situation with COVID-19 closely, working with health experts and government entities at every level. As safety is our first priority, we have decided not to move forward with the Conference scheduled for May 18-21, 2020 as planned.

We are working on a contingency plan for the 2020 Conference and will have an update for you very soon! In the meantime, we have placed new registrations and modifications on hold.

Our promise to you:

•       Once we have released our contingency plan, you will have the option to transfer your registration if you’d like to participate.

•       All paid registrants who do not wish to participate will receive a full refund.

We ask for your patience while we recalibrate on our end and work out a thoughtful and functional way to safely bring you the 15th Annual Conference on Crimes Against Women. We are excited about our new plans, and we think you will be too!

Stay tuned and be well,

Conference on Crimes Against Women Team

"This is the strongest single learning tool available to me. I cannot express to you how much beneficial information comes to me, and then to our county, through this event. Thank you!"

“This conference has raised awareness in areas with which I was not familiar.  It's also a great opportunity to hear everyone's fight in this issue and great to see so many across the state and nation, working towards a common goal."
– Campus Safety Officer

"CCAW rejuvenated my desire to help others, and find ways to be more efficient while assisting my clients.The case studies I saw helped me take into consideration everything the criminal justice systems entails, and how the process can affect victims and their families.  Instead of focusing on what I have to get done, I have begun once again to focus on what my clients need."
-Victim Advocate

"The conference was fabulous. Not only are the workshops excellent but there is an energy that one gets from being around professionals who are all striving for the same thing, regardless of the discipline from which they come.
– Probation/Parole Officer
