Professional Development and Networking

Using the latest technology and social networks available, CMACO will be a hub for sharing what is working for our members, a place to find solutions for issues your agency is experiencing, and where members can share their success stories. Using webinars, virtual round tables, web-based discussion forums, and existing social networks, we are building a community of practice to support our member organizations.

Capacity Building and Technical Assistance

Using experts in the field, our goal is to build Promising Practices for Missing and Abducted Children’s Organizations and to help our members implement the ideas that will work for their agencies through targeted technical assistance, site visits, networking opportunities, and our annual conference.
