CIF Conferences

CIF Conference TurkeyEvery other year CIF hosts an alumni conference based on a social work theme.  CIF has hosted 31 conferences since 1958.  Conferences are generally one week long, include 2-3 days of workshops, a day of site vists to local social service agencies, a cultural activity, and are hosted anywhere there is a CIF presence.  You do not have to be an alum to participate in the conferences.  

Throughout the conference alumni have the opportunity to meet and discuss social work topics, current trends in the industry and of course catch up with friends and former particiants of the program.

The 34th CIF Conference was held in Saint Malo, France, July 1-6, 2019. 

The 2021 conference will be held in November in Japur, India.

A list of past conferences and highlights from the conferences can be found on the CIF International website.
