Join NACY for the Inaugural Connecting the Sector Conference, as we come together to share what we have learned over the past two years.


After two years apart, the children and youth sector is coming together to celebrate our successes and share the lessons we have learned as we continue to strive to create opportunities to our communities youngest citizens. We know that for many of you, the 2022 NACY conference will be the first opportunity since 2020 to gather in-person as a sector. For us, this means putting an emphasis on networking, share stories and learning from one another. The conference will feature a series of keynote speakers and plenaries, formal training opportunities, an inclusion room and small group breakouts sessions.

In order for folks who are not able to attend the conference in person, Keynote and Plenary sessions will be made available for live streaming. Registration will be available for online activities in March 2022.


In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and do our part in keeping our communities safe, the National Alliance for Children and Youth: Connecting the Sector Conference is implementing the following protocols for conference attendees, presenters and guests.
