Presenters will have an opportunity to schedule times to be available at their poster to engage with participants and answer any questions they or the judges might have.

Following the conference, we will send out an announcement to our entire mailing list of over 45,000 people with the names and photographs of the winners and the title of your poster presentation.

You will be asked to provide the billing address used for the credit card and the security code (the 3-digits located on the back of the card, or the 4-digits on the front of an American Express credit card).

Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve® is located within San Diego city limits and yet remains one of the wildest stretches of land on our Southern California coast!

Continuing Education (CE) contact hours are available for Nurses and Social Workers only. Because of the varying needs and costs associated, we are not able to provide CE contact hours for every discipline. The fee for CE contact hours is $25.00.

Nurses: Provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider #15641. Nurses will need their license number in order to receive a certificate. Certificates of completion will be issued to attendees within ninety (90) days of the conference.

Social Workers: This program is approved by the National Association of Social Workers (Approval Number 886443650-2626). However, the following states will not accept NASW national approval: New York, Michigan, West Virginia, New Jersey, Idaho, and Oregon.

The following steps are required to receive a CE certificate for Nurses and Social Workers:
  • Attend trainings and complete the Official Record of Attendance.  On the last day of the conference, turn in your record of attendance to the CE table.
  • Complete the overall conference evaluation online.
  • After you've completed the evaluation, and we have verified your record of attendance, a certificate of attendance will be emailed to the address you provided.
Law Enforcement: Because of the varying needs of law enforcement, we cannot apply for POST credit in each state. However, law enforcement personnel are encouraged to download the agenda, abstracts and biographical sketches of speakers to submit to your continuing education board for approval. Please contact us if we can provide you with assistance.

Victim Advocates: The International Conference is typically approved for Department of Defense Sexual Assault Response Coordinators (SARCs) and Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Victim Advocates (SAPRVAs) to receive CEUs through the Department of Defense Sexual Assault Advocate Certification Program (D-SAACP). Civilian Advocates are also generally approved to receive conference CEUs through the National Advocate Credentialing Program (NACP). Visit www.trynova.org for more information about these programs.

The following steps are required to receive CEUs for D-SAACP and NACP certified Advocates:
  • Pick up your Official Record of Attendance form at the CE desk.
  • Attend trainings and complete the Official Record of Attendance.
  • Have an EVAWI staff member or volunteer initial for each workshop attended.
  • DO NOT turn in your record of attendance to the CE table at the end of the conference. Take your Official Record of Attendance and submit it when you apply for D-SAACP or NACP certification renewal.
Other Organizations: If you belong to another organization, you will be able to get a certificate of attendance if you complete the online evaluation, and we encourage you to submit that along with our agenda, abstracts and speakers’ biographical sketches, (all available on our website) to your own organization to see if you could get the continuing education credit you are seeking.

Applications will be reviewed by a selection committee of multidisciplinary professionals who will rate them using standardized criteria. These criteria are designed to assess the following areas:

  • Level of current and future responsibility for sexual assault response and investigation
  • Demonstrated self-initiative (e.g., completion of EVAWI OLTI modules, webinars, participation in a Start by Believing campaign)

Benefits at the Annual Conference

There are a number of particularly valuable opportunities for corporate partnership at our annual conference, which provides training for thousands of professionals on sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking, human trafficking, and elder abuse.

Our 2018 conference was held in Chicago, Illinois, and it drew a total of 2,156 attendees from 50 states, 3 territories and 12 different countries. The 2019 conference will take place in San Diego, California April 22- 24, and it will have a special focus on increasing access.

Conference partnerships provide a unique opportunity to highlight your commitment to victims as well as professionals. This international event consistently brings together law enforcement personnel, prosecutors, victim advocates, judges, parole and probation officers, rape crisis workers, medical personnel, faith community members, educators, researchers and others for three days of training highlighting promising practices and emerging issues to effectively respond to these crimes.

Two additional training sessions will be offered on April 25th, the day after our main conference ends. The 2019 post-conference sessions will provide participants an opportunity to participate in a course focused on Human Trafficking: Identification & Trauma Informed Response Best Practices, or a course on Self-Care in High Intensity Work
