Join conference

Reconnect. Recharge. Reignite.

Tuesday, October 20 – Wednesday, October 21

For the 2020 National CASA/GAL Virtual Conference, we aim to re-energize program leaders, staff and volunteers; and ultimately better serve children and youth as we move into 2021. Through carefully curated sessions and institutes, conference attendees will:

  1. Reconnect with peer-to-peer engagement.
  2. Recharge through professional development opportunities and best practice sharing.
  3. Reignite their passion for service.

This year’s conference will feature prominent speakers, dynamic sessions and more, with the goal of helping attendees prepare for a new tomorrow. You don’t want to miss it!

Conference registrants may also register for institutes on topics such as leadership, volunteer administration; and diversity, equity and inclusion. The institutes require an additional fee.
