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.

Last year, our four-day conference hosted a record-breaking 1,552 attendees, representing 252 tribal communities and 300-400 agencies from 45 different states and providences. Participants comprise a diverse cross-section of experts including child welfare; mental health; juvenile justice service providers; legal professionals; advocates for children; and tribal, state, and federal leaders.
