Annual Foster Care and Adoption Conference

The Coalition’s 29th Annual New York State Foster Care and Adoption Conference will be held on Thursday, May 10 – Saturday, May 12, 2018  at the Hilton Albany in Albany, New York


For almost three decades, the Coalition’s annual statewide conference has provided an opportunity for foster, adoptive and relative care parents to join with professionals to be inspired, network and learn about the latest in the field.

Aimed at parents and professionals alike, the conference brings leaders in the child welfare field to New York and offers a variety of topical workshops designed to deepen the knowledge of attendees, make connections to other parents and professionals and give attendees tools they can bring home and share in their community.  Nationally-known plenary speakers and workshop presenters share their knowledge and expertise to help participants gain perspective, increase skills, and learn to appreciate the positives. 

2018 Workshop RFPs have been received. Thank you to all who sent in submissions.  Thank you for your patience. Potential presenters can expect to be notified the week of January 8th, 2018. If your workshop has been selected and you need to register as a presenter, please click here to fill out the registration form before January 26th, 2018.
