A Message from the President

On behalf of the DRAP Board of Directors, it is my extreme honor to welcome you to the 56th Annual Domestic Relations Association of Pennsylvania Training Conference. This year we return to our State Capitol in Harrisburg and look forward to enjoying the Capitol complex as well as all that downtown has to offer.

The Conference Committee has worked tirelessly to provide you with presentations that will not only enlighten you as to the new innovations in Child Support but also offer motivation to encourage you to perform at a higher level when you return to your county offices. You will experience a collaborative effort with DRAP, BCSE, PACSETI, OCSE, Deloitte and Conduent to provide you with what I believe to be the very best training in the country.

During breaks, please take time to visit all our vendors, as without them we would be unable to provide you with such a wonderful conference.

Following daily training, the Entertainment Committee has organized events that will allow you to wind down and relax with your fellow Child Support Professionals at various events throughout the hotel complex and city.

Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the conference agenda and plan to attend all sessions that you feel can impact what you do on a daily basis. Additionally, the new and improved website provides invaluable resources to aid you in being more successful in being the best Child Support Professional that you can be.

I want to thank the entire Board of Directors for all the hard work that you do on behalf of all Child Support Professionals and the children that we serve statewide. Without your unwavering dedication we could never maintain the level of success that we have come to expect from the top program in the nation.

The key to our success has and will always be the camaraderie that we share with each other. I challenge each and every one of you at our conference to meet someone new, share ideas and create new friendships. Remember we are all in this together and together we will continue to keep Pennsylvania at the forefront in Child Support Enforcement.

I sincerely hope that you enjoy your time in Harrisburg, and I look forward to meeting everyone at the Training Conference.
