Save the Date! The National Council For Adoption Conference is back!


July 6-8, 2011 in Washington, D.C.

Every year at the National Council For Adoption (NCFA) annual conference, leaders in the field of adoption learn what is happening at the forefront of adoption policy and practice and how they can play an active role in improving and safe-guarding adoption. This year, we are adding educational tracks that provide prospective adoptive parents the unique opportunity to learn about the latest research on various topics surrounding adoption, as well as resources available to them pre- and post-adoption.

NCFA is committed to producing professional, educational conferences of the highest caliber!

Adoption professionals and prospective adoptive parents (PAP) are invited to join us for a 3-day learning experience that promotes best practices and sound policies in adoption and educates attendees on pertinent adoption-related research in the areas of domestic, inter country, and adoption out of foster care.


Here's a tentative list of topics you can expect to learn more about during the conference:

* Adoption Agency Management
* Birthparent Support
* Domestic Adoption
* Domestic Adoption Programs in Foreign Countries
* Foster Care
* Humanitarian Aid Collaboration
* Parenting children with Special Needs
* Post-Adoption Services
* Public vs. Private Adoption
* Risk Management

Here's an sneak peek to the list of topics that caught my attention immediately:

* Adoption Ethics
* Adoptive & Foster Parent Support
* Advocacy and Public Policy
* Intercountry Adoption
* Legislative Issues Impacting Adoption
* Hague Convention
* Race, Culture, and Diversity in Adoption

REGISTRATION IS EXPECTED TO OPEN IN EARLY MARCH 2011.

I don't want you to miss this opportunity. Visit www.adoptioncouncil.org/events for more information.

Make plans TODAY to Build your family through the Miracle of Adoption!

Until next post, remain blessed!
