Child Sex Trafficking

How we are Combating a Crisis at Home

April 17, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:15 pm

Nancy Rodill

As executive director for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s Texas Regional Office, one of four regional offices in the country, Nancy sets the statewide strategy for the organization and leads its fundraising and strategic partnership efforts. Since the beginning of her tenure in 2015, her work with NCMEC’s legislative team has informed legislators on laws in Texas. Her leadership of educational programs for law enforcement and child welfare professionals statewide has resulted in thousands of front line responders trained to recognize the signs of child sexual exploitation, and hundreds of thousands of children educated on prevention programs on online and personal safety.

How is Texas, and the region, addressing this grave crisis of our times? What should we be aware of, and sensitive to, in playing a role in combating this social problem? What are some specific NCMEC resources that we can utilize to help resolve this crisis in our backyard?

Nancy’s career legacy of launching and growing small divisions of large organizations has directly impacted the Texas Regional Office, helping develop a strategy for the office and creating and executing the Texas Women for Children to educate, engage and empower Texas women to sustain NCMEC programs.

A Texas native, Nancy received her Bachelor of Science in Communications and McCombs School of Business Foundations Certification from the University of Texas in Austin. She is currently working on Master of Arts in Human Dimensions of Organizations from the University of Texas in Austin. She was awarded the 2017 Blazing Star Award by the Texas Women’s Chamber of Commerce.

Nancy enjoys spending quality time with her husband and their 6-year-old daughter. On the weekends, the trio can often be found eating and laughing with neighborhood friends or walking their very dramatic Shiba Inu.

The buffet luncheon will open at 11:30 AM. Ms. Rodill will speak and take questions from the audience from Noon to 1:15 PM. The new price for the luncheon is $40 for members, $50 for non-members and $35 for students and military personnel in uniform with a discount of $10 for early registration that ends at noon on Monday of this event.
