About Continuing Education

APC is very excited to offer Continuing Education Contact Hours for the first time at our conference. These Continuing Education Contact Hours can be earned by currently licensed social workers who need to earn CE's throughout the year. The CE's are being offered through the Silver School of Social Work at NYU. 

This organization (NYU Silver School of Social Work, 1415) is approved as a provider for social work continuing education by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) through the Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program. The Silver School of Social Work is recognized by the New York State Education Department's State Board for Social Work as an approved provider of continuing education for licensed social workers #SW-0012. NYU Silver School of Social Work maintains responsibility for the program. ASWB Approval Period: 11/11/15 - 11/11/16. Social workers should contact their regulatory board to determine course approval for continuing education credits.

In addition to the $50 conference registration fee (click here for registration details), an additional $25 is due to NYU to get credit for your CE's. You will also need to contact info@adoptiveparents.org to receive more information about where and how to register for CE's with NYU. 

If you have any questions about this new program, please feel free to reach out at info@adoptiveparents.org.

Reciprocal Link Program

For Exhibitors or Journal Advertisers (minimum half page size) we offer a reciprocal link on our Conference Sponsor Links page back to your site once you are approved for entrance to the conference.  This will give you greater access to reach your target audience as prospective adoptive parents explore the APC site. The nature of a reciprocal link is that you also will put a link back to the APC site.  The sooner you sign up, pay and get approved the sooner your linke will be listed.  Please contact Barbara Pitkowsky babsmomapc@aol.com with "APC LINK" in the subject line.
