2017 1st Annual Clerical Conference

In October 2017, Washington State Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) held their first annual statewide Clerical Conference at the Hotel Murano in Tacoma, WA.  This training conference brought together over 150 clerical staff in every office across the state.  Our clerical heroes had the opportunity to hear dynamic speakers beginning with Advancing in State Service, Quality Assurance, FamLink, Public Disclosure, Risk involving Torts, plus several other key areas directly related to working with difficult people, stress management, dealing with change and self-care.   

There was also an opportunity to hear directly from Acting Assistant Secretary, Connie Lambert-Eckel, as well as the new Secretary of DCYF, Ross Hunter.
