It was one of the primary goals of the founding of TACLP to reinstate this important professional development opportunity. In 2017, TACLP hosted the 1st Annual TACLP Regional Child Life Conference in Houston, TX. In 2018, the 2nd Annual TACLP Regional Conference was hosted in Fort Worth, TX, and in 2019, the 3rd Annual TACLP Regional Conference was hosted in Houston, TX. For 2020, the 4th Annual TACLP Regional Conference will take place in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and will include traditional presentations and poster presentations that are appropriate for both child life professionals and students.  



Our 4th Annual TACLP Regional Conference will be held on Saturday, October 24th at INTEGRIS Children’s at Baptist Medical Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The Call for Abstracts is now open until Friday, June 5, 2020. Click here for the 2020 Abstract Submission Guidelines.
