2017 Children’s Roundtable Summit
The Kaleidoscope of Change: Expanding the View
On April 24-26th 2017, over 400 Judicial Officers, legal professionals and child welfare agency leaders (representing 52 counties) gathered at Seven Springs PA to attend the bi-annual Pennsylvania Children’s Roundtable Summit.
The theme of the Summit was “The Kaleidoscope of Change: Expanding the View”.
Just as the function of a Kaleidoscope reminds us that even a slight shift in perspective and vision can change the whole picture, the Summit topics raised significant questions with the answers dependent on your perspective or viewpoint.
