Collaborate’s Pre-Conference Workshop, to be held in Huntsville, AL on March 23, 2020 at the 36th International Symposium on Child Abuse, is geared to new and experienced users of the Collaborate Software System, which is used by nearly 400 children’s advocacy centers nationwide.

Training Details

The hands-on training event will hone your Collaborate skills and allow you to:

  • Master the fundamentals with interactive demonstrations
  • Understand advanced topics with expert guidance
  • Learn and share ideas with Collaborate users from across the country

Users will discuss how the database has been customized for their unique case management needs - and show off a little. The Collaborate team will listen to participants about potential new and innovative features that could be added to the system to improve workflow, and the overall process of entering and extracting data to meet the needs of their organizations. Bonus: lunch is included!
