The BEST way to get all 15 of your required hours in one quick shot is to come to OUR YEARLY AMAZING CONVENTION! The convention is traditionally held the 2 days before Mothers Day which means you should pencil in May 11, 12, 13 of 2017!
The convention is held at Shocco Springs in Talladega, Alabama. For our 2016 the cost was $35 per person and includes 2 nights and 3 days including meals. You can stay Wednesday and Thursday night, or Thursday night and Friday night. If you choose to stay 3 nights you are responsible for the extra night. The rooms can hold up to 4 people and are hotel style. If you the soul traveler and want a private name the charge is extra $20 per night . Childcare is not provided due to liability costs at the camp, however we would love to assist you with finding respite care! It’s a GREAT convention, a great way to meet foster parents from all over the state, and a wonderful way to get all your required renewal hours quickly.
