NACC Pursuing New Executive Director [Press Release]
Friday, September 16, 2016
The National Association of Counsel for Children (NACC) announced today that Executive Director Kendall Marlowe will be leaving the organization to pursue a position in direct child welfare services. The NACC Board of Directors will conduct a search this fall for his successor.
The NACC has been fortunate to have Marlowe at the helm these past 3 years. His successor will be well positioned to continue to grow the NACC’s influence and impact.“I’m very proud of what we’ve done, but that’s just the start of what NACC can accomplish,” said Marlowe. “I look forward to continued collaboration with this community in my own work, and know that NACC will remain a leader in protecting the rights and interests of vulnerable children, parents and families.” During his tenure, NACC realized substantial gains in membership, produced a new policy agenda, and published the 3rd Edition of the leading treatise Child Welfare Law and Practice. NACC also increased its digital reach, with the publication of a weekly law and policy blog, Children, Families and the Law.
Founded in 1977, NACC is the leading national organization of attorneys and other professionals serving children and families in child welfare, juvenile justice, custody, and family law cases. The organization produces the largest annual national conference on children’s law, delivers trainings across the country, and created and administers the only program approved by the American Bar Association to certify attorneys as Child Welfare Law Specialists. The NACC’s more than 3,000 members include leading attorneys, judges, court administrators, physicians and social workers from across the country. Its 40th National Child Welfare, Juvenile and Family Law Conference will be held August 10-12, 2017, in New Orleans.
