Who should attend the NACAC conference?
Adoptive, kinship, and foster parents, child welfare professionals, adoptees, alumni of foster care, and other child advocates.
When is the last date I can register?
Registration for the live sessions has closed. You can still register to receive access to the recordings, which will be available the week after the conference through September 30.
During the Conference
How will the conference work?
Each day of the conference we are offering five workshops and one interactive, shorter lunch-time session. (See the schedule—check your time zone carefully)
The workshops will be offered on GoToWebinar, and you’ll receive two series of emails:
- About a week before the conference, you should receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org (generated by GoToWebinar) confirming your registration for the first session of every day you are registered for. If you’ve recently registered, you’ll get the emails by Tuesday, August 25, at the latest. (If you registered two or more weeks ago and have not received these emails, contact us at email@example.com immediately so we can investigate. The email contains a Join Webinar link to that first session and a link to access handouts for the conference. It will also list the lunch sessions and link for that day.
- One hour before each workshop (five per day), you’ll receive an email confirmation with your unique link for that specific session.
To test that GoToWebinar will work for you, go to https://support.goto.com/webinar/help/join-a-test-session-g2w060001. You can also download the GoToWebinar app from your app store if you plan to join by smartphone.
The lunch sessions will be on Zoom. All sessions are at noon central time (1 pm eastern, 2 pm atlantic, 11 am mountain, and 10 am pacific). These sessions will not be recorded and are not eligible for CEs.
If you registered for the conference, you should have received an email with a list of the links to the lunch sessions. If you haven’t received it, email us ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that the lunch sessions may fill.
What if I need closed captioning?
For the workshops, which are being held in GoToWebinar, you will go to https://2020archive.1capapp.com/event/nacac/ a little before the session. This will open a browser window where captions will appear. You can resize and move the window as you would any other browser window, lining it up next to the GoToWebinar window. You can also adjust font sizes and colors as you prefer.
Before a new workshop starts, please refresh your browser.
For the lunches, which are held in Zoom, captioning will be done directly in Zoom. Simply join the session as usual and turn the captions on as needed.
After the Conference
What if I want a certificate of attendance?
You’ll get a certificate of attendance for each session you attend live, emailed through the GoToWebinar platform after the conference.
How do I get continuing education credits (CEs)?
Shortly after the conference, you’ll receive an email with a link to an overall conference evaluation. After completing the evaluation, if you are interested in receiving continuing education credits (CEs) for any of the workshops you attended live, you’ll have the opportunity to complete a form saying which sessions you attended live and to pay the $30 US/$35 CAD fee. (The fee is a one-time total price, no matter how many classes you attend.) CEs are provided by NASW (approval #886544849-0820) or R. Cassidy for those states that do not accept NASW credits. Please check with your licensing board.
CEs are not available for recorded sessions.
How do I access recordings?
The week after the conference, you’ll receive an email for each day that you registered for with links to the recordings for that day. You’ll have until September 30 to listen to the recordings.
