PACT Annual Convenings are opportunities for cohort members across all four regions to build valuable connections with peers, brainstorm challenges and plan future steps together. This year’s theme REDEFINE is a call to collectively pause and redefine success through perseverance and collaboration. Our agenda will be driven by input from members; centered on cross-county sharing, exploring innovation and hearing from lived experience leaders.

2023 PACT Convening General Agenda

Frequently Asked Questions

We purposefully keep the attendance on the smaller side to encourage relationship building between PACT Cohort members, as such this is not an event that is open to the general public. Please send the individuals most directly implementing your county’s child trafficking response (2-3 representatives per county). We will update should some counties be unable to attend and additional spots become available. Our PACT Staff, Consultants and  CDSS’ Child Trafficking Response Team will also be in attendance.  

This is an opportunity to pause from our everyday marathon to connect with colleagues from across the state. So we intentionally ask that participants set aside time to be present –  bringing ourselves, our passion, knowledge and experience to fuel a time of creative exchange and vision casting. Think of this as more of a group retreat, than a large-scale conference. Let’s have some fun and relaxation too!  There are lots of opportunities for participation beyond attendance  i.e.  if you are Interested in participating as a greeter, a table/discussion leader, breakout room facilitator or have other ideas, let us know!

At this point, there is no anticipated virtual attendance. PACT Convenings are highly interactive and are not conducive to a hybrid format. We will host a Virtual Statewide Gathering at another point in the year as an alternative opportunity to connect.

Some individuals may choose to arrive Sunday evening April 16th (We will plan an informal networking opportunity for those that are interested). Registration will open from 9:00 am – 10:30 am in the Foyer or Regency F Ballroom.  A formal agenda will begin April 17th at 10:30  am to accommodate those driving that morning.  An optional PACT Networking Reception will take place on April 17th 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm.  We will close with an afternoon plenary on April 18th to end by  3:30 PM. Schedule subject to change, details to follow.
