Cancellation of the 41st AAC International Conference in San Diego, CA
Due to COVID-19

By now all of our Keynoters, Presenters and AAC Membership has received the following notice:

To all of our AAC family,

We write to you today to let you know that due to the Coronavirus State of Medical Emergency in California we have decided to cancel the upcoming AAC 41st International Adoption Conference in San Diego.  The board members of AAC care deeply for all of our members as well as the presenters and speakers that come to our conferences.  This decision did not come lightly but we want to keep everyones safety and best interest at the forefront.  In the meantime the AAC Board will be working on where and when to hold our next conference, as well as developing other learning opportunities.  Since there was such a big win in New York just recently in gaining access to original birth certificates, we will be moving or legislative efforts forward in other states such as Virginia and Maryland.

Please be sure to check back here at our website frequently for updates and announcements on upcoming conferences.

If you have registered for this AAC Conference, you will receive your refund within 30 days. 

Thank you for all of your support!
