Public Welfare Attorneys' September Conference

Planning is under way for the 41st Annual National Training and Continuing Education Conference of the AAPWA, which will be held in Minneapolis on Sept. 21-24, 2008. The conference will be located at the Hyatt Regency on Nicollet Mall, within walking distance of restaurants, shopping, theaters, the Mississippi River and the Walker Sculpture Garden.

Human service agency attorneys from across the nation benefit from this conference focused on their particular work. Litigation updates in Medicaid, TANF and child support, and child welfare, appellate advocacy training, in-depth sessions on current legal issues faced by human service agencies, instruction on legal issues in emergency preparedness, and practical information on electronic discovery requirements are among the sessions planned. Attorneys who have attended past conferences have found the information gained has strengthened their ability to advise and represent their agencies in an increasingly changing world. In addition, the connections formed with colleagues in other states and localities are invaluable in their daily work. Continuing legal education credits add to the benefits of the conference.
