Conference Objectives



After careful consideration we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Native American Child and Family Conference that was re-scheduled for November 16-19, 2020 in Arizona.

Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented situation. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for our Head Start programs. But we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have at this time.


We look forward to seeing you next year, March 15-18, 2021 in Albuquerque, NM .
