The National Adoption Conference

Join us June 23–25, 2020, to grow in your knowledge and applications of best practices, network with fellow professionals, and be renewed and inspired for the important work of serving the adoption community. The National Adoption Conference brings together professionals, resource organizations, and advocates from around the country who serve in a variety of fields, and all share a common commitment to helping children thrive in nurturing, permanent families.


Through two full days of breakout sessions, plenary sessions, caucus gatherings, and an Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill, attendees will explore challenging issues in adoption, innovative practices, and thought leadership from all fields of adoption.  Anyone with a passion for ensuring bright futures for children is welcome.  Social work CE credit will be available.
