2 upcoming adoption conferences

I wanted to highlight 2 upcoming adoption-related conferences that you might be interested in attending.

Joint Council on International Children’s Services is hosting their annual conference on March 17th-20th in Baltimore, MD.  This would be a good place for anyone interested in international adoption to get information about the process!  The also offer workshops and Continuing Education credits.  Here is a link to their website.  As part of the agenda this year, they will be having an Adult Adoptee and Adoptive Family Day on Saturday, March 20th.  There will be a track for international adoptees over 15+ years of age, as well as post-adoptive and pre-adoptive parent tracks.

Also coming up is the Center for Adoption Policy’s Annual Adoption Law and Policy Conference.  This will take place at the New York Law School on Friday, March 5th.  Their keynote speaker, Dr. Charles Nelson, will speak about Deficits, Intervention and Recovery after Severe Social Neglect in Romanian Orphans.  View the agenda and register, or you can visit their website.

Please feel free to comment to add information about other adoption conferences, or to share feedback if you’ve attended previous conferences from JCICS or CAP.
