Buckle Up Conference Image


The BuckleUpNC conference (also known as North Carolina's Child Passenger Safety Conference) is North Carolina's only conference dedicated to the protection of children and their families as they travel in motor vehicles. The conference aims to provide sessions that reflect diversity of the field, with the intent of increasing knowledge and sharing best practices throughout North Carolina and beyond. This event is structured to bring together hundreds of CPS technicians, instructors, advocates, and industry leaders to discuss the most current occupant protection resources, technologies, products, and programs.

Because the 2017 Lifesavers Conference will be held in Charlotte, NC in March we will not be having a traditional BuckleUpNC Conference in 2017. Instead, we will be holding a CPS-themed pre-conference event in conjunction with the NC Safe Kids Injury Prevention conference in Concord, NC and a 1-day symposium in the Eastern Region in the fall. In addition, some CPS CEUs will also be offered as part of the Safe Kids Conference. Each event will have a separate registration so Technicians can choose to attend one or more events.
