Introduction

CAFFA is pleased to announce that registration is now open for our 24th full day Parenting Through Adoption Conference! We have an exciting lineup of Speakers, Exhibitors, and Sponsors. Our day will also feature numerous workshops for pre-adoptive, foster, waiting, and experienced parents, as well as for Adoption Professionals. As always, we will offer shopping from Fair Trade vendors and an Exhibitor Hall to make sure you leave with a headful of information and an armload of resources!

Great news! We have been approved for 6 hours of Illinois foster care license / training for prospective parents, and 6 CEU education hours for adoption professionals seeking Social Worker credits.

Finally, anyone involved with adoption is welcome to attend, regardless of CAFFA membership.

The deadline for all registrations is February 19, 2017. Space is limited and filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Fee includes breakfast, lunch buffet, access to all conference areas, and certificates of attendance for those requesting documentation for foster care license renewal hours.

We hope to see you there!
