Family Voices and AMCHP

The 2011 Family Voices National Conference will take place on February 13-15, 2011, at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC, in conjunction with the 2011 Annual Conference of the Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs (AMCHP). Both conferences will focus on the theme Working Together to Improve Maternal and Child Health.

The Conference: The Family Voices National Conference will provide opportunities for hearing, learning, connecting and networking with not only the wide national network of Family Voices parent and youth leaders but also the wider population of AMCHP's network of state Title V and MCH leaders and partners from across the country. The Conference will feature Family Voices-only events as well as shared events with AMCHP. You’ll get more ‘bang for your buck’ in 2011 – your FV conference registration fee includes all these events! (Click here for information and photos from the 2009 Family Voices National Conference.)

The Gala: We invite you to join Family Voices and AMCHP in a shared celebration honoring the lifetime achievements of Polly Arango and others who have dedicated their lives to families and children at the Gala dinner on Monday, February 14, 2011. This fundraising event will benefit both Family Voices and AMCHP. (Click here for information and photos from the 2009 Family Voices Gala.)
