Greetings ICWA Advocates:

The Oklahoma Indian Child Welfare Association (OICWA) is excited to announce the dates for the 17th Annual OICWA Conference, November 12th, 13th & 14th of 2024!  We have yet another momentous cause to celebrate, the 40th anniversary of the Oklahoma Indian Child Welfare Association which is reflected in this year’s conference theme, “40 Years of OICWA: Honoring Our Legacy, Strengthening Our Future”.     


The goal and focus of the conference is to increase knowledge and promote the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978 (ICWA) and Oklahoma Indian Child Welfare Act of 1982 (OICWA) through practices, laws, policies, historical reference, trauma resilience, tribal sovereignty, cultural preservation and services. The OICWA Conference is a leading training institute in the field of Indian Child Welfare in Oklahoma. 


Ultimately, our purpose is to strengthen relationships and facilitate collaboration efforts through education with Tribal Child Welfare and all disciplines, such as federal and state agencies, behavioral health, law enforcement, officers to the court, juvenile justice, and therapeutic care. We believe in sharing our expertise to contribute to the collective knowledge of our field. This year’s conference will offer three days of intensive ICWA training.


The OICWA Conference Committee is seeking support through sponsorships to assist OICWA in offsetting the cost of expenses related to the production of the conference to include nationally recognized keynote speakers, venue rental, audio/visual equipment rental, conference materials and cultural demonstrations.  


Sponsorship opportunities available for this year’s conference are detailed on the attached page.  OICWA will accept monetary donations of any size.
