14th Annual ND Indian Child Welfare & Wellness Conference

The 14th Annual North Dakota ICWA (Indian Child Welfare Act) conference will be held Wednesday through Friday - Feb. 18-20 - at the Baymont Inn & Suites in Mandan, North Dakota. The Baymont is the former Best Western Seven Seas, on the north side of the Interstate by Mandan.

If you would like to attend this conference, please contact Jen Heid no later than Wednesday of this week (Feb. 4th). Jen will have the registration form for you to complete and Project CEDAR will pay for your registration. You may be excused from classes to attend this conference if you get approval from your instructors.

Professional conferences are a wonderful way to interact with people from a variety of disciplines (i.e. Education, Social Work, Medical, etc.). It's also a great opportunity for us to get more practice in this type of setting and give us confidence.

The topics for this conference have always been about important issues and participants have found the really interesting and worthwhile. For more information, go to this link: http://www.nativeinstitute.org/.

Remember to fill out the registration forms with Jen if you want to attend. Enjoy!
