Annual Foster Care and Adoption Conference

2017 Adoption and foster care conference

In the Spaces Where Family and Culture Meld, We Explore the Impact on the Identity of Us All

The Coalition’s 28th Annual New York State Foster Care and Adoption Conference will be held on Thursday, May 11 – Saturday, May 13, 2017  at the Albany Marriott 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.

Scholarships for local district caseworkers and parents are often available on a limited basis.

Call for Workshop Proposals is now open! Submit Proposals by Wednesday, November 30th.  Please review the RFP, guidelines and submit using the online form at http://affcny.org/conference/proposal/.
