In the past, several different hospitals took turns planning and hosting an annual Texas child life conference. However, in recent years hospitals have not been able to offer a child life conference.  It was one of the primary goals of the founding of TACLP to reinstate this important professional development opportunity. We are THRILLED to announce the return of the annual Texas child life conference on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston, TX. Conference will include presentations appropriate for both child life professionals and students. 

**Registration will close on Friday, October 6, 2017** 

     Conference pricing is below:

     Professional Member : $85

     Student Member: $60

     Non-member: $115

This year's conference participants will be eligible to receive 7 PDUs (professional development units). Payment is required at the time of registration. Registered participants will receive an email after registration closes with instructions on how to choose conference sessions. Please direct any questions to

Important Considerations:

  • Conference presenters have free registration so you do not need to register online!  You will just return your presenter agreement form to confirm you will be presenting and that also confirms you are attending the conference.
  • TACLP members receive a discounted conference rate!  Join TACLP prior to registering for conference to benefit from this membership perk.
  • TACLP members are also eligible to serve as a 2018 committee member.
