This year over 450 attorneys, judges and child welfare professionals attended the Third Florida Guardian ad Litem Program Disabilities Training Conference. The keynote speakers were inspiring thought provoking and gave us all tools to use in helping the children we work with every day. The workshops were wide ranging with presenters sharing their expertise in areas such as guardianships, psychotropic medications, master trusts and educational advocacy. Videos and materials from the workshops and keynote speakers are available on the Statewide Guardian ad Litem Website at: http://guardianadlitem.org/training-advocacy-resources/conferences-training/2016-disabilities-training-conference-a-voice-heard/
If you are an attorney in Florida and would like to receive CLE credit you will need to watch the video and report the course number and information to the Florida Bar at www.FloridaBar.org. There are 45 credit hours available and the course numbers are valid for 18 months or until November 28, 2017.
