The National Crime Victim Bar Association (NCVBA) National Conference provides essential, cutting-edge information on current legal subjects, as well as offers important resources and litigation strategies that attorneys need to best represent crime victims. Held in conjunction with the National Training Institute of the National Center for Victims of Crime, this annual gathering brings together up to 1,000 victim advocates, civil attorneys, criminal justice professionals, and law enforcement officers to share their knowledge and experience across disciplines.

IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

During these uncertain times due to COVID-19, the National Center wants to be as transparent as possible regarding the status of our National Training Institute and National Crime Victim Bar Association National Conference. We have officially cancelled the in-person portion of our conference, and all sessions will be offered virtually. Details on the virtual event can be found below. 

  • All registrations for the conference will be virtual only, and reduced rates are being offered 
  • Virtual conference attendees will be able to view a livestream of select presentations, including plenary sessions, over the course of the conference dates.
  • All attendees will also receive all conference presentations that are not being live-streamed to watch at their own pace.

 

The health and safety of our attendees, presenters, and staff are our priority, and it is for this reason that we made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person conference. Please stay safe and healthy!

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Is the registration price reduced since the conference is virtual? 

    Absolutely. The conference price has been decreased drastically to reflect the differences in a virtual event. We are also honoring the regular registration rate through the start of the event, instead of charging a late registration price. More information on rates can be found on the website here.

  2. Will I be able to network with other attendees and presenters during the event? 

    Yes! We are currently working on the best option for networking. This will likely involve an online group (ex: Facebook, Google groups) for attendees to meet, chat, and engage with presenters.

  3. I’ve already made a hotel reservation. What do I do?

    If you have made a reservation at the Hilton, please cancel it as soon as possible. The Hilton will be releasing all room reservations in the next few weeks, but we do recommend contacting them directly to ensure that your reservation has been cancelled.
