This essay describes the history of conferences on children and youth welfare held by the Executive branch since 1909, and the substantial policy improvements that followed. Linda Spears and Tim Briceland-Betts of the Child Welfare League of America note that because of the effects of the recent global economic crisis, our children are in need of the reinstatement of this conference more than ever.
