Greetings to all attendees of the 40th California State Foster Parent Association Annual Training Conference!  This event is our Association’s biggest event of the year and I look forward to having an opportunity to meet and greet many of you in person.  This is your opportunity to spend time catching up on the latest events and legislation that impact us all in our very important role as caregivers, social workers, and educators.

The 2016 conference committee has worked countless hours to develop workshops and find speakers that we hope you will find interesting, challenging, and helpful in your role.  This year’s motto is, “Wheel of Change…Still Powered Through Love.”  This is a time of unparalleled changes that affect all of us.  It is extremely important that we, as caregivers and supporters, keep up with the new and changing laws and guidelines that are coming up in California.

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy lives to attend our conference and to use this as an opportunity to continue learning in order to better advocate for yourselves and the children in your care.  I would also like to recognize and thank the representatives from the California Department of Social Services for their outstanding support in helping to sponsor and organize what promises to be an outstanding conference.

I am looking forward to seeing you at the conference.
