National Adult Protective Services Association’s Annual Conference
August 29 - August 31
Please join us for the 33rd National Adult Protective Services Association (NAPSA) annual conference August 29-31, 2022, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The NAPSA conference is the only national conference with a focus on the increasingly visible problems of elder and vulnerable adult abuse. This year’s event is in conjunction with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.
The 13th Annual National Summit on Elder Financial Exploitation (EFE) will be held September 1, 2022.
The conference is primarily geared toward Adult Protective Services professionals, although is well-attended by those in the law enforcement, legal, domestic violence, aging, medical fields and beyond. More than 600 executive directors, managers and supervisors, as well as direct service personnel, are expected to attend this year.
Workshops will cover a broad range of topics, from social isolation that COVID amplified for APS victims to cutting edge research in abuse, from self-neglect to legal issues, and from guardianship to victim advocacy. We will also cover all levels of experience with the issue of adult abuse. Everyone who works with victims of adult abuse will find workshops to meet their needs at this national conference.
