National Conference for Adoption Professionals: What is it?

According to their website, the National Conference for Adoption Professionals has a clear Mission: “to meet the diverse needs of children, birth parents, adopted individuals, adoptive families, and all those touched by adoption through global advocacy, education, research, legislative action, and collaboration“. Founded in 1980, NCFA is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

They are passionately committed to the belief that every child deserves to thrive in a nurturing, permanent family and they invite all adoption professionals to join them June 25-27, 2019, to grow in their understanding of adoption principles and root themselves within the adoption community.

The National Adoption Conference gives every adoption professional an opportunity to branch out of his/her comfort zone as they meet new colleagues and explore challenging, innovative adoption concepts. The conference’s inspiring keynotes and breakout sessions feature speakers from across the adoption triad and all fields of adoption. Social work CE credit will be available.

The conference will be held in the heart of the city at Sheraton Atlanta and is accessible by public transportation.  (Sheraton Atlanta – 165 Courtland St NE, Atlanta, GA, 30303 – (404)-659-6500).
