FAC ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2019

Since 2000, the Florida Adoption Council has offered an annual conference with the most up to date and relevant education on adoption for both lawyers and social workers. Typically held in October each year, the two-day event, with an additional day of add-on classes, provides the opportunity to obtain a large amount of CLE/CEU credit at one time. Members and non-members alike may register for the conference. Sessions are available to assist the newest worker in the adoption area up to experienced professionals seeking advanced training.  Add-on classes range from Adoption 101 to Adoption Litigation and ICWA topics. The conference also offers networking opportunities, social events, and a vendor showcase with adoption related products and services.
