23rd Annual Conference

October 21-22, 2019

Salt Palace Convention Center

Salt Lake City, Utah



The individuals noted below were responsible for the development and design of this year’s three-day program. As always, the program is specifically targeted to professionals from many disciplines who are dedicated to serving youth and families. The experts on this committee shared their time and commitment to youth and families to develop this year’s phenomenal program. They devoted many hours to reviews of literature, professional practices, surveys, needs assessments, service gap issues and organizational and professional input – including suggestions from last year’s attendees. From there, they designed an outstanding program for you to enjoy and gather tools and information you can incorporate into your own practice(s) to enhance the quality of care you provide.
Please extend your thanks and congratulations to each of these dedicated individuals.
