Baltimore, MD, (May 3, 2017) – International Social Service is pleased to announce that Elaine Weisman, Program Manager at International Social Service-USA, will speak at the 43rd Annual Association of Administrators of the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (AAICPC) Conference on May 22, 2017.

Taking place in Portland, Maine, the AAICPC Annual Conference is a four-day convening where compact administrators, judges, attorneys, case workers, policy advocates and other nonprofit, federal, public and private stakeholders will address important child welfare issues. Specifically, the AAICPC Conference will focus on matters arising out of the legal, financial and administrative responsibilities associated with placing children across state lines. The annual meeting will explore the legal and technical aspects of permanency planning that enable children to thrive and receive necessary services, such as medical, therapeutic or educational services, in intra and interstate placements. 

This year, conference discussions will include immigration, refugee resettlement, human trafficking, and unaccompanied minors, among other topics. Alongside other child welfare professionals, Elaine will share information about best practices in permanency planning and placing children in safe homes across state lines and international borders.

In her role as Program Manager at International Social Service, Elaine works to build partnerships and enhance collaboration for the protection of children crossing borders. Elaine delivers trainings for social work partners, both domestic and international, related to international child welfare and the protection of unaccompanied minors.
