When registering a family, please add the primary registrant first (an adult with Williams should be first before an accompanying parent) and then "add family member" for each subsequent addition, including a second parent and children. Parent #1 will choose sessions and Parent #2 will choose sessions separately, as they don't have to be the same. Please purchase optional items for the entire family during the primary registrant's process (parties and extra t-shirts). If you are a parent attending with an adult with Williams, please register them as the primary registrant. Thank  you! 



The 2018 convention begins on Wednesday, July 11 and continues through July 14 at noon. The keynote speaker will start things off at 1:30 Wednesday. Programs for children and individuals with WS will start at 8 a.m. Wednesday and run until noon on Sat. We know that some families will be arriving throughout the day on Wednesday, so in that case, programs for your children will begin Thursday morning. Programs for all age groups but infant/toddler day care will be off site, so if you're starting Wed., you'll need to be there in the morning in order to not miss the programs and transportation. 

The National Convention is comprised of more than 50 educational sessions for caregivers and professionals. Valuable information and resources will be presented to help you understand Williams syndrome, and provide strategies to use in helping your child be the best that he or she can be.

Separate daily programming is provided for family members of ALL ages (infant through adult) and evening events are designed to provide an excellent forum for fun and friendship for the whole family. This year, we're taking advantage of our location in Baltimore and having a street party Thursday night in Little Italy! Friday night we'll host our famous dance party. Both of these optional events can be purchased during registration. 

For further information on the convention hotel, other designated accommodations, and more details, please visit our website.

To see a list of sessions and the full schedule, choose "Agenda" from the menu bar. We recommend that you read descriptions and select choices before starting the registration process. For those joining us for the entire convention, you'll choose "Weekly Registration"; we also have one and two day choices. For one and two day attendee registration, you'll see the entire agenda, but please only pick sessions for the days you are attending. When registering a family, please add the primary registrant first and then "add another family member" for subsequent additions.  

Parent/Caregiver online registration is open until June 30, 2018 at midnight PST.

All Infant/toddler, School Age, Teen, and
Adult with WS programs will close on June 10, 2018 (no exceptions!)
