Become an Annual Conference Sponsor

Become a sponsor of the largest national gathering of American Indian/Alaska Native child welfare professionals dedicated to building the capacity of tribal nations to ensure that all Native children have safe, permanent homes. Every year we recruit a broad range of partners starting in August through to March to help underwrite this critical training event.

Last year we offered practical, timely, and culturally relevant information to 1,212 frontline tribal child welfare and behavioral health worker participants. Conference attendees represented 272 American Indian/Alaska Native/First Nations governments from 47 US states and Canadian provinces.

Our theme of “Connectedness, Persistence, and Resilience” truly grounded all of us over three full days of content including four plenary sessions, 50 workshops, and 142 speakers. Our plenary sessions averaged 687 participants, and our workshops averaged 133 participants.

Our conference is the largest national gathering on American Indian and Alaska Native child advocacy issues. This year we anticipate over 1,200 attendees representing more than 200 tribes over three days.
