MCSEA allows you to make an investment in yourself by taking advantage of several training and educational opportunities.  Any time you can gain new skills or sharpen existing ones gives you a boost in confidence in your own abilities and can lead to having a positive impact in the child support program.  As you acquire new knowledge and skills, you can focus on your personal development as you serve with others who are committed to the delivery of services for Missouri families. 

Who we are

John Ginwright
Deputy Director of Child Support
Family Support Division

“MCSEA gives child support partners and professionals the opportunity to network and share best practices and innovative ideas in a non-structured setting. Unlike the normal work environment, MCSEA allows everyone from entry-level employees to the department director the same opportunity to express their opinions and provide their input on a level playing field. The Association has proven to be of great benefit in furthering Missouri’s child support mission and goals.”

Kerensa Morrow-Kempf
MCSEA Past President

"I have a personal connection to child support. As a trainer for the State of Missouri, I'm fulfilled when I see my trainees help the people of Missouri.  We offer sessions for child support specialists, circuit clerks, attorneys, and positive parenting programs so that these professionals are well informed of our ever-changing landscape. Learning together, we can provide a positive outcome for the families we serve."

The MCSEA Scholarship is available to all Child Support professionals that are members of the MCSEA family. Endeavoring for excellence in their fields, recipients receive financial support to attend our Annual Conference.  Apply today!
