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.

In 2018, the BuckleUpNC Conference will be merging with the NC Governor's Highway Safety Symposium to form the new NC Traffic Safety Conference and Expo. The goal of this combined conference is to bring together a variety of highway safety professionals to collaborate on advancing the safety of all NC road users. BuckleUpNC will have a dedicated track of Child Passenger Safety CEU and non-CEU sessions, similar to what is typically offered at the BuckleUpNC Conference.

In addition to the BuckleUpNC track at the NC Traffic Safety Conference and Expo, some CPS CEUs will also be offered as part of the Safe Kids Conference. The BuckleUpNC Conference Committee will also be exploring the option of holding a regional one-day symposium in Western NC, similar to the Eastern Region Symposium held in 2017. Each event will have a separate registration so Technicians can choose to attend one or more events.
